CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (“CPI Aero®”) (the “Company”) (NYSE American: CVU) announced that it has received orders valued at approximately $4.6 million from Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI), the prime contractor for the T70 Turkish Utility Helicopter Program (TUHP). The multi-year purchase orders call for CPI Aero to manufacture window assemblies on 109 T70 aircraft over an estimated 5-year period. The Company expects to begin deliveries by the end of 2019.
TUHP is an industrial partnership launched in 2016, comprised of Sikorsky Aircraft, a Lockheed Martin Company, the Government of the Republic of Turkey, and members of the Turkish aerospace industry. TUHP produces the T70 utility helicopter based on Sikorsky’s successful multi-role BLACK HAWK© utility aircraft. CPI Aero has been producing similar window assemblies for the BLACK HAWK helicopter since 2010.
Douglas J. McCrosson, president and chief executive officer of CPI Aero commented, “These multi-year purchase orders leverage our exceptional program execution, quality, value, and customer service to Sikorsky on the BLACK HAWK platform. We are excited to add TAI as a valued new customer and honored that they selected CPI Aero for this important helicopter program.”
