A recent memorandum of understanding (MoU) covers the exploration of Sikorsky’s further potential participation in the Trinidad and Tobago Aviation Institute, which is scheduled to open in September.

Under the MoU, Sikorsky’s participation may include providing expertise in maintenance training and technical know-how, including “train-the-trainer” proficiency, as well as exploring future partnerships with operators for student internships and on-the-job training.
