PPG Industries’ Aerospace Transparencies group has been awarded a contract to supply windshields for UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters and variants operated by the U.S. Army, Navy, and allied forces.

PPG Industries’ Aerospace Transparencies group has been awarded a five-year, $50.1 million contract by the Defense Logistics Agency’s Defense Supply Center in Richmond, Va., to supply windshields for UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters and variants operated by the U.S. Army, Navy, and allied forces.

“As the original supplier of windshields for the Black Hawk, we are pleased that the U.S. government continues to show confidence in our ability to supply exceptional quality transparencies that meet this helicopter’s demanding flight requirements,” said Brent Wright, PPG Aerospace global business manager for Military Transparencies. “We are proud to continue supporting men and women in the American armed services, as well as the forces of U.S. allies around the world, by supplying windshields for the Black Hawk.”

PPG has produced heated glass windshields for the Sikorsky Black Hawk helicopter and its variants since the program’s inception in the 1970s, according to Preston Nesselrotte, PPG Aerospace senior account manager for military transparency sales. The windshields are made at PPG’s Huntsville aircraft transparency facility for original equipment and replacement applications.

“These windshields have delivered highly reliable performance in harsh operating environments around the globe,” Nesselrotte said.
