Sikorsky UH-60M Black Hawk Helicopter


The UH-60M Black Hawk a twin-engine medium-lift utility helicopter. Developed in the early 1970s to replace the Bell UH-1, it has since been built over 4000 times. It is used worldwide primarily as a military helicopter, but also as MedEvac (transporting injured people) or fire fighting. With the designation S-70, it is also offered as a civilian version. The original variant “A” was fitted with a modern glass cockpit and enhanced rotor blades in 2006 and designated as variant “M”.

Available variants: UH-60M Black Hawk, VH-60N White Hawk (Marine One), HH-60 Pave Hawk and Sikorsky S-70
