rived at the site in early July, signifying a key event for the on-time activation of the seventh contractor logistics support (CLS)

site operating in the HSI CLS program. The aircraft delivery there brings the LUH fleet to a total of 72 aircraft.

“The Fort Rucker CLS site will support an air ambulance detachment that pro- vides mission-critical support to army avi- ator training, Military Assistance to Safety and Traffic (MAST) and Army Ranger training in North Georgia,” said Sam Mehta, HSI President. “The on-schedule activation of the CLS site at the ‘home of Army Aviation’ reemphasizes our com- mitment to our customer and illustrates the strong team relationships that continue to make this program a success.” The US Army has purchased 345 LUH aircraft, which will be supported through the HSI CLS program. The CLS team continues to deliver LUH fleet operational availability rates in excess of 90 percent. The Fort Rucker facility is the single training base for all US Army aviation as well as US Air Force rotary wing pilots. In addition to HSI, Sikorsky Aerospace Maintenance, American Eurocopter, Thales and SAGEM are providing con- tractor logistics support to the EADS LUH Program. ❚
