BLACK HAWK was designed to strict battlefield requirements and has continued to be improved based on operational experience. This has culminated in an unparalleled level of trust.

During the last 40 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.
Energy attenuating, non-tricycle, wheeled landing gear designed for unprepared landing zones and sloped areas:

  • Absorbs energy in the event of a mishap / hard landing thereby protecting occupants from high loads.
  • Landing Gear withstands sink rate of 30 fps with airframe 38 fps making it more than 5x safer than commercial aircraft.
  • Allows for taking off and landing in significantly higher sloped terrain and / or unprepared surfaces.
