Sikorsky Statement On CMHP Contract Signing

STRATFORD, Conn., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. welcomed the signing of a contract amendment today with the government of Canada to bring the Canadian Maritime Helicopter Program to completion and accelerate the CH148 Cyclone helicopter's entry into operational service. The amended contract enables Canada's Department of National Defence to take delivery of operationally relevant CH148 Cyclone helicopters, and to begin retiring the current SEA KING™ helicopter fleet, in 2015.

"This agreement clears the way for us to deliver the world's most advanced maritime helicopter capability to the Royal Canadian Air Force," said Mick Maurer, president of Sikorsky. "We thank the government for its shared commitment to work through the issues that had delayed the program."
