Budget Bill Should Keep Lockheed Helicopter Projects On Course

By Jason Weinstein.
Two major helicopter contracts at Lockheed Martin should stay on track.

The House and Senate could vote as early as this week on a federal budget bill that includes over $507 million for the Presidential Helicopter Program and more than $156 million for the Combat Rescue Helicopter Program.

That according to a joint announcement by Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand. A team of Sikorski Aircraft and Lockheed Martin in Owego are working on the two helicopter projects.
