DUBAI (BNS): Sikorsky Aerospace Services (SAS) has signed a follow-on contract with the Royal Saudi Land Forces Aviation Command (RSLFAC) to upgrade its fleet of BLACK HAWK UH-60A helicopters.

Based on the success of the H-60 Helicopter Recapitalization and Upgrade Program for U.S. Army BLACK HAWK aircraft, the H-60 helicopter modernisation programme offers comprehensive fleet upgrades for Sikorsky's global customers.

The RSLFAC A-to-L conversion plan is the second international modernization programme under contract with SAS.

The upgrade programme incorporates key improvements consisting of a T700 to T701D engine upgrade for increased power and reliability, and upgraded flight controls, avionics and instrument panel modifications, the company said.

Additionally, each upgraded H-60 helicopter will be equipped with a new Aircraft Flight Control Computer (AFCC) as well as new wiring harnesses, a high speed shaft and a sealed lead acid battery.
