USAF to issue contract to Sikorsky for rescue helicopter
The US Air Force's combat rescue helicopter programme is moving forward.
The service announces on 4 March that it intends to issue a contract by the end of June , which calls for up to 112 aircraft.
Sikorsky, in partnership with Lockheed Martin, was the only company to bid on the project with its proposed CRH-60, a modified version of its UH-60M Black Hawk.
The CRH is intended to replace the USAF's aging HH-60G Pave Hawk rescue helicopters. flightglobal
