Air Comm Corp. next delivered its 1,000th BLACK HAWK helicopter cabin heating system to Sikorsky Aircraft in August.
Weighing in at just 16.5 pounds, the BLACK HAWK heating systems are warming the cabins of helicopters flown by active U.S. Army and National Guard units worldwide.
Members of the elite 101st Airborne, who had operated the cabin heating system throughout the winter during their deployment to Afghanistan two years ago, have formally recognized Air Comm for exceptional performance through a commendation certificate and mission flag.
â€œSince Air Comm Corp. has been working with Sikorsky to deliver the cabin heating system for their BLACK HAWK helicopters, we have never had a quality rejection or late delivery,â€ said Keith Steiner, president of Air Comm Corp. â€œWeâ€™re dedicated to providing products that are reliable, efficient and perform exceptionally well, even in the most extreme conditions. Weâ€™re very proud of the fact that weâ€™ve reached the milestone of delivering our 1000th unit and are looking forward to delivering many more.â€
The BLACK HAWK cabin heating system is lightweight and low maintenance, with no ducts or blowers, and it does not intrude on space in the aft transition area.
