M2 EQUITYBITES-November 30, 2016-Columbia's civil aviation authority approves certificate for Sikorsky helicopters


Colombia's civil aviation authority Unidad Administrativa Especial de Aeronautica Civil (UAEAC) has approved the offshore and utility type certificate for Sikorsky's S-76C, S-76-D and S92A helicopters, the authority said.

The certificate enables Colombia's commercial aviation operators to add the multi-role helicopters for transportation of workers or cargo to offshore oil and gas rigs, as well as regional airline passenger service, and VIP transportation.

The certificate caps a flight test program to introduce the commercial aircraft manufactured by Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company (NYSE: LMT), to Colombia.

Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 98,000 people worldwide and is engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
