LifePort Inc. Signs Two Agreements Launching Company Into Mission-Specific Seating

ATLANTA, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- NBAA Trade Show -- LifePort Inc. today announced the signing of two agreements that launch the company into customized mission-specific seating. LifePort is a Sikorsky Aerospace Services (SAS) company – the aftermarket division of Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).



The first agreement – with V. Kelner Pilatus Center (DBA Pilatus Center Canada) – marks the company's entry into the slide and swivel seating segment of medical mission equipment. LifePort will design, build and certify medical multi-mission seats for the Pilatus PC-12, a dual patient single engine turbo plane. Delivery is scheduled for June 2011.

"We have partnered with LifePort in previous projects and our companies share the philosophy that customer product support is paramount.  LifePort is diligent in meeting our unique mission requirements," said Steve Davey, Vice-President of V. Kelner Pilatus Center.

LifePort also has entered into a contract with another customer, whose identity is not being disclosed, to provide troop seating that will integrate machined aluminum frames and carbon fiber backrests.  This custom seating solution is 30 percent lighter than previous offerings and will be incorporated with high-density medical systems in the same aircraft.

"The Kelner agreement – along with a recently secured contract for ultra-lightweight troop seating – further expands our offering of mission equipment interiors. LifePort has the unique capability to integrate custom seating solutions that provide our customers turn-key interior solutions for special mission aircraft," said Noah Zuckerman, LifePort's Vice-President of Business Development & Strategy.
