Sept. 29, 2008, Richmond, BC – Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services North America (Vector) announces this year’s International SEA KING Maintenance Symposium, being held in Vancouver from Sep. 30 to Oct. 2, 2008 has sold out, with more than 190 participants registered.

This year’s attendee list includes an impressive array up presenters from international military and commercial Sikorsky SEA KING /S61 helicopter fleets, including the Canadian Department of National Defence; the United States Navy; the German and Australian Navies; the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence; the Royal Malaysian Airforce; the Tunisian Airforce and representatives of Vector Aerospaces’ Canadian and United Kingdom-based operations. As well, the event is also drawing appreciable interest from commercial S61 helicopter operators and specialized equipment suppliers from North America and overseas.  This annual event, now in its 11th year, provides a forum for military and civilian operators and equipment manufacturers to share information that helps ensure the continued successful operation of the international SEA KING fleet.

The 2008 International SEA KING Maintenance Symposium organizing committee plans to have two operational variants of the SEA KING /S61 helicopter on display on Day 2 of the event at the Vector – Richmond facility, as well as one experimental Carson Helicopters Incorporated S61, equipped with the latest hi-tech equipment innovations.

Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services North America is an industry leader in providing comprehensive engine, dynamic component, structures and avionics, repair and overhaul services to SEA KING / S61 customers.
