US Army Europe Gets New UH-60M Black Hawk


US Army, March 16, 2018 - WIESBADEN, German by By Capt Jaymon Bell, 12th CAB - The 1st Battalion, 214th Aviation Regiment, 12th Combat Aviation Brigade received three UH-60M (mike model) Black Hawk Helicopters, here, 07 Mar., 2018.

The UH-60M is an improved model over the UH-60 A/L (alpha plus model) that 214th had in the past. The improvements include an all-digital cockpit, increased lift capacity and improved engine performance.

The all-digital cockpit reduces pilot work load through a flight director system which is similar to an auto pilot function which can maintain altitude and airspeed. The system also increases situational awareness through a moving map system, which displays a two-dimensional representation of all the surroundings.

Rotors blades are also improved on the mike model and have a dihedral swept tip which provides increased lift capacity.

The integrated vehicle health unit maintenance computer system is also an important addition to the UH-60M. The system monitors a variety of moving components and helps advise maintainers prior to any component failure. This means that parts are now replaced by actual wear and not by time.

"The UH-60M Black Hawk will allow 1-214th to shorten trips throughout Europe and to support USAREUR and EUCOM in a better capacity," said Chief Warrant Officer 4 Stephen Randall, battalion aviation maintenance officer for 1st Bn., 214th Avn. Regt. "We can now fly almost all approaches here in Europe."

A Federated Air Navigation system improves the compliance with the European One Sky Initiative which allows for more precise traffic routes through Europe and helps de-conflict an already crowded airspace.

The 12th Combat Aviation Brigade trains and conducts aviation missions across the full spectrum of unified land operations for United States Army Europe, United States European Command and our allied and NATO partners.
