"Vector Aerospace is recognized in the industry as a leading provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services. Aligned with our international strategic initiatives and overall commitment to our worldwide customers, this agreement serves as an important launch point in the U.K.," said Frank DiPasquale, SAS Vice-President, Business Development & Strategic Relationships. "We are pleased to work with Vector Aerospace and look forward to future opportunities to strengthen our relationship and enhance  our support capabilities for Sikorsky's commercial operators throughout Europe. "

The Customer Service Centres will offer Sikorsky S-76 helicopter operators complete aftermarket support, including Sikorsky trained local maintenance personnel for on-site comprehensive maintenance management, inspections and spare parts procurement.

"Vector's full depth support capabilities combined with Sikorsky's Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) integration services will provide enhanced support for the U.K.'s   S-76 VIP platform.
