Civil and commercial operators in the U.S now can purchase new Black Hawk aircraft | Intelligent Aerospace

Must Read

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has accomplished licensing of the S-70M Black Hawk helicopter, a new variant classification, by giving a Restricted Category Special Airworthiness Certificate to Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin business.

By permitting private and commercial operators in the United States to purchase new Black Hawk aircraft directly from the factory, FAA certification and the development of a pilot type rating are projected to increase the market for the military-designed helicopter. The first S-70M Restricted Category aircraft was delivered to San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) on November 18 at the Sikorsky Training Academy in Stuart, Florida.

At United Rotorcraft, a part of Air Methods in Colorado, SDG&E will convert the plane to the Firehawk design. The aircraft’s 3,785-liter (1,000-gallon) external tank will be prepared to drop water on wildfires with high precision by 2023.
