STRATFORD - Published reports say United Technologies is looking to spin off or sell Stratford-based helicopter manufacturer Sikorsky Aircraft. 

Defense News and the Hartford Courant are reporting on the possible sale of Sikorsky, which has a 90-year history in Connecticut.

The report comes a week after Sikorsky celebrated receiving a new round of federal defense spending.

U.S. Rep Rosa DeLauro, Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Sen. Chris Murphy were all at the company's headquarters last week to praise how the contract would allow Sikorsky to build more helicopters in the coming year.

A United Technologies spokesman declined to comment on talks of a sale.
