My Career at Sikorsky Aircraft

  • Eight Sikorsky employees deployed to the Gulf region gathered for a group picture on Saturday, April 12, in front of a UH-60 BLACK HAWK helicopter. The photograph was taken at Patton Army Heliport, Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. All eight are members of the 1109th Aviation Classification Repair Activity Depot (AVCRAD), which was activated on January 29th and deployed to Kuwait on March 8. The AVCRAD employees perform depot-level repairs on all varieties of U.S. Army helicopters.
