Brazilian Navy Signs Agreement To Acquire Additional S-70B™ Aircraft

PARIS – Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. announced today at the Paris Air Show that the Brazilian Navy has signed an agreement with the U.S. Government to acquire two additional Sikorsky S-70B™ maritime helicopters via the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) process. Sikorsky is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

In 2010, the Brazilian Navy contracted for four S-70B aircraft, also through the FMS system, with deliveries starting in December 2011 and continuing through the end of the First Quarter of 2012. Sikorsky expects contract finalization for the additional two aircraft in 2012. The multi-role S-70B SEAHAWK™ helicopter can perform anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare missions, among others.

“The Brazilian Navy has relied on Sikorsky aircraft for decades, including the venerable H-3 SEA KING™ helicopters dating to the 1960s. We thank the Navy sincerely for its continuing commitment to our products,” said John Pacelli, Vice President, International Military Business, for Sikorsky.

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., based in Stratford, Conn., is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacture, and service. United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Conn., provides a broad range of high technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.
