Planned Job Creation:
Sikorsky, the American aeronautics company, plans to produce helicopter components in Mielec (Podkarpacie region). Production of components, including helicopter fuselages, may eventually be expanded to where the Mielec facility builds entire helicopters. Thanks to this investment by Sikorsky, the Podkarpacie region will gain 1,000 new jobs. Sikorsky presently controls some 35% of the global helicopter market; its Black Hawk machines are used on a large scale by the American military.
