Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. has just won a $116.5 million contract from the U.S. Army to maintain and overhaul the main rotor blade for its Black Hawk helicopters.

The Stratford-based subsidiary of Lockheed Martin was the only bidder on the firm-fixed-price contract, the Department of Defense announced Monday. Bids were solicited via the internet.

The defense department said work locations and funding will be determined with each order. The estimated completion date is Aug. 15, 2026. 

The Army uses the helicopters to carry personnel and cargo. They are built to transport an 11-person, fully-equipped infantry squad, according to the Army.

The contract comes as Sikorsky is also ramping up production on its CH-53K heavy-lift model helicopter for the Marine Corps and a combat rescue helicopter for the Air Force.
