Erickson Inc. working with NASA

Medford, Ore. — Local aviation company Erickson Incorporated will be assisting a special client.

The company is contracted to work with NASA in support of their initial phases of a 3rd generation mid-air retrieval project. The project, as the name suggests, is focused on retrieving NASA vessels after re-entry into the atmosphere.

Erickson Inc. will be studying the concept for proposed NASA missions that use mid-air retrieval with a helicopter.

The work will be at the facility in Southern Oregon and will take about 3 months.
