Project description

The Army’s fleet of Black Hawk helicopters continue to provide the required levels of support to airmobile and special operations capabilities.

During 2014-15, the operational fleet will reduce to 18 aircraft and sustainment will be optimised to ensure that the smaller fleet provides the required level of operational availability until Black Hawk is replaced by the MRH90.
