SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE -

Ka­man Cor­po­ra­tion con­firmed that the US Depart­ment of State has granted au­tho­ri­sa­tion that would per­mit the com­pany to ne­go­ti­ate a pos­si­ble sale of SH2G(I) Su­per Sea­sprite He­li­copters to New Zealand. The po­ten­tial sale would in­clude 11 SH-2G(I) he­li­copters, a full mo­tion flight sim­u­la­tor, train­ing aids, spares in­ven­tory, pub­li­ca­tions and the in­tro­duc­tion into ser­vice and through life sup­port of the air­craft.

The Ka­man SH-2G(I) Su­per Sea­sprite is the lat­est ver­sion of the multi-mis­sion maritime he­li­copter and would po­ten­tially re­place the coun­try’s ex­ist­ing fleet of SH-2G’s. These he­li­copters would sig­nif­i­cantly en­hance New Zealand’s ver­ti­cal lift ca­pa­bil­i­ties with ex­cep­tional per­for­mance and low oper­at­ing costs. Ka­man con­tin­ues to sup­port the Min­istry’s ob­jec­tive of ex­tend­ing the naval he­li­copter ca­pa­bil­ity through 2025.
