Asia Pacific Aerospace (APA) has confirmed continuation of non-destructive testing (NDT) services previously offered by the Sikorsky Australia NDT unit.

As of December 18, all five members of the former Sikorsky Australia team transitioned to APA’s Macarthur facility. The facility has been upgraded to accommodate the advanced NDT methods now added to APA’s capability: Ultrasonic NDT (UT), Radiography NDT (RT), Eddy Current NDT (ET) and Infrared Thermography (IRT).

These new capabilities and facilities now make APA the most comprehensive NDT service provider in Australia.

“We look forward to what this team brings to APA, because what they do aligns with our quality standards of safety, service and skill,” Tony Cotroneo, General Manager of APA, said.

“The transition has gone very well, with thanks to Sikorsky Australia, the team members and the APA transition team.

“We aimed to ensure there was no disruption to customer operations supplied by this valuable and important team, and this has been achieved.

“As we look forward, we are driven to expand the team’s capability and promote their services within the aerospace sector in the Asia-Pacific region.”

All Sikorsky Australia team members have transitioned across to APA, ensuring their skill and capabilities are retained in the Australian market. They will continue to service clients in all sectors of general aviation.
