BLACKHAWK HISTORY

Formerly operated as Vector-Hawk, Blackhawk Aerospace Solutions formed in 2008 to bring vast engine upgrade and superior customer service capabilities to government agencies. Blackhawk soon won the Government of Israel’s engine and propeller MRO contract, which successfully continues to this day.

Soon after, L3 selected the company to help solve engine MRO management and repair cycle issues. Blackhawk successfully reduced L3’s average engine overhaul time from 120 days to 45 days, significantly reducing costs and downtime.

We understand the unique challenges facing today’s government and defense operators and how limited budgets push the limits of legacy aircraft. Blackhawk Aerospace Solutions continues to grow and innovate. We are constantly adding to our extensive list of services and capabilities as we work to keep you flying by reducing costs associated with upgrades and increasing the performance of legacy aircraft.
