    CT58 / S-61 Support by Columbia and Brightwater


    Columbia Helicopters, March 22, 2022 - Columbia Helicopters and Brightwater United Aero Group (UAG) entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on a supply chain agreement supporting the GE CT58 engine and the Sikorsky S-61 platform in its entirety.

    Columbia has operated and maintained the CT58 engine for more than six decades, developing a strong relationship with GE over the years including partnering to evolve the product. In March 2018, Columbia Helicopters became the Total Logistics Support provider for all operators and maintainers of GE T58 and CT58 engines.

    Under that agreement with GE, Columbia was licensed to produce all procurable spare parts under its FAA Production Certificate utilizing original equipment manufacturer (OEM) drawings and specifications and provide maintenance for the global fleet.

    Santiago Crespo, Vice President of Growth and Strategy at Columbia Helicopters, commented: “This MoU allows us to be well positioned with United Aero Group to support the S-61 and CT58 communities with product/logistics support and OEM components. We are excited to team with United Aero Group and leverage both of our talents.”

    United Aero Group was granted the Sikorsky distributorship of total support of the S-61 platform in 2020. UAG offers a full offering of S-61 support for parts, GSE and rotables. UAG believes this opportunity to work with Columbia Helicopters in developing a more holistic solution for the future of this platform will support the operators and the OEM at a new level.

    Jamie Gelder, President and CEO of Brightwater UAG, added: “Teaming legacy support leaders for logistics and front office customer support, bolstered by the expertise needed in manufacturing and engineering, supports the original OEM role by creating new revenue for the platform. We are very pleased in this opportunity to work with Columbia and the OEMs.”
