The Sikorsky UH-60A Black Hawk is a four-blade, twin-engine, medium to heavy lift utility helicopter. Named after the Native American war leader Black Hawk, the UH-60A entered service with the U.S. Army in 1979. Modified versions have also been developed for other United States Armed Services branches and Black Hawks have served with distinction in combat conflicts across the world.

The UH-60A Black Hawk utility helicopter has been used in the public sector for over 40 years, and is considered the "workhorse" of helicopter aviation transport. This safe, powerful and reliable utility helicopter is a perfect solution for heavy lift jobs.
