Mexican Federal Police Black Hawk Overhaul
Dangle Aviation, part of TAI-GLOBAL, repaired a battle damaged UH-60 Black Hawk from the Mexican Federal Police and is going to upgrade another one at Ryan Airfield, Tucson, Arizona
TAI-Global, December 01, 2017 - Dangle Aviation, a TAI-GLOBAL Group company and FAA certified repair and overhaul facility, recently completed a repair project on a UH-60 Black Hawk, and it was awarded a contract to upgrade a Sikorsky S-70i, both out of Mexico.
The UH-60 Black Hawk is part of the Mexican Federal Police fleet and sustained battle damage, including bullet holes that resulted in extensive damage to its structure. The aircraft’s engines were removed and sent to England’s H+S Aviation for inspection and repair, while Dangle Aviation completed the structural work.
“When a bullet passes through a helicopter, it can cause considerable hidden damage,” TAI-GLOBAL Group vice president Sergio Gonzalez said. “Our technicians needed to completely disassemble the aircraft to find all the damage, in order to repair it properly.”
Rescue Hoist and Cargo Hook
The new contract won by Dangle Aviation is out of Jalisco, Mexico, and it will be serviced at Ryan Airfield in Tucson, Arizona. The contract is to upgrade a Sikorsky S-70i with the installation of a rescue hoist and cargo hook.
“It is with great pride that we welcome an increasing number of international contracts,” Gonzales said. “The Dangle Aviation team strives to provide best-in-class service to all of its customers.”
