A driving force in the US helicopter industry

Pankl Aerospace Systems is a top supplier of drive train components, refueling tubes and landing gear components, for helicopters and fixed wing aircraft.

In January 2012, Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. selected Pankl as one of 35 companies to join its team assembling two prototype S-97 RAIDER™ helicopters for the U.S. military. The RAIDER program will demonstrate the military applications of Sikorsky’s break-through X2™ rotorcraft design, which proved its capability in 2010 by doubling the cruise speed of conventional helicopters.

Pankl is also actively involved with the Bell 525 Relentless, the world’s first "super-medium" helicopter. The Bell 525 Relentless will define the new "super-medium" product category, designed to offer best-in-class capabilities to customers, with superior payload and range, cabin and cargo volumes and crew visibility. Capable of carrying up to 16 passengers, the Relentless support clients in the oil & gas, search & rescue, helicopter emergency medical services and VIP/corporate transport sectors.

Pankl have also won Sikorsky’s first Entrepreneurial Challenge to identify small innovative firms it could help incubate. They are working on several rotary-wing technologies and have packaged them together in a concept called H.E.R.O. – Helicopter Equipped with Reconnaissance and Onslaught.
