Asap Semi upgrades their systems monthly to keep up with competitors and innovated from other companies. We also like to upgrade things to keep up with suppliers and stay in the game. Airod recently gave Sikorsky their first upgrade to their S-61A-4 Nuri, which is a transport helicopter. This upgrade sound be good for at least ten years, which involves then receiving an all-new glass cockpit and the rotorcrafts avionics. This upgrade also changed the electronics to have a digital flight display and a moving map.
The first Nuri that got upgraded it took them five months to complete the process, this was done at Subang Airport which is on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. People don’t think the Nuri has had a lot of flight hours because of its age but has an estimate of 40,000 hours. With this upgrade, they airframe and components will be inspected and replaced if they don’t pass the test. At ASAP Semi, we like to know all parts and components of these Nuri so we can get all parts in stock, so they can just contact us for all replacement parts.
