Sikorsky BLACK HAWK Helicopter – Charles D’Alberto

P1030338

The BLACK HAWK multirole helicopter serves with the U.S. military and the armed forces of 26 other countries worldwide as a tough, reliable utility helicopter.

During the last 35 years, this remarkable aircraft has fought its way in and out of countless combat zones to deliver and extract troops, save lives as a MEDEVAC or casualty evacuation platform, provide critical supplies to troops, deliver emergency supplies during natural disasters, and perform as an aerial firefighter and border patroller.

Now the modern variant of this utility aircraft is taking on a new mission set — as an Armed Helicopter to provide fire suppression when supporting ground troops, as well as armed escort. With digital avionics, powerful GE engines, high strength airframe structures and composite wide chord rotor blades, today’s BLACK HAWK platform has better survivability and situational awareness, and can fly higher and carry more than its predecessors ever did.

More than 3,000 BLACK HAWK aircraft of all types are in service worldwide today. The U.S. Army is the largest operator with 2,300 UH-60 designated aircraft. The same aircraft sold internationally direct from Sikorsky acquires the S-70 designation.

Configurations tailored to customer preferences allow the aircraft to provide fire suppression, support ground troop, become an armed escort, or perform armed assault missions.
