Goodrich celebrates aviation milestone

VERGENNES - U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and employees of Goodrich Corporation's Sensors and Integrated Systems in Vergennes celebrated the completion of the plant's 2000th HUMS diagnostic mechanical system and surpassing the $100 million milestone in HUMS sales March 8.

HUMS provides "real-time" monitoring of fatigue in military aircraft, resulting in safety improvements and financial savings for the government.

U.S. Army Blackhawk helicopters were retrofitted with the locally made system starting in 2000.

The program has been so successful that it is now a standard monitoring system on additional types of helicopters used by U.S. Armed Services.
