Rheinmetall Aviation Services GmbH
Rheinmetall Aviation Services GmbH, based in Bremen, was founded at the beginning of 2019 as part of the Group’s strategic cooperation with the US helicopter manufacturer Sikorsky in the Heavy Transport Helicopter (STH) procurement programme. Sikorsky formed a German industrial team early on which is led by Rheinmetall. Rheinmetall's responsibility in the CH-53K team includes maintenance, repairs, training and documentation.
Rheinmetall and Sikorsky have been cooperating together intensively in various procurement projects since 2009. Thanks to the new order, expertise gained through this partnership will now be profitably put to work on behalf of the Bundeswehr in Diepholz.
