The UH-60 was built purposely for the U.S. Army as being a rugged, reliable replacement for the famous UH-1 Huey. Literally thousands upon thousands of the UH-60 (and variants) fly in countries around the world. 5 State Helicopters is extremely proud to offer the aircraft for loads upward of 8,000 pounds. This aircraft, just like all the helicopters in our fleet is a twin-engine. Likewise, this aircraft can be flown on one engine if necessary. Safety is the most paramount aspect to 5 State Helicopters… which is why we only utilize twin-engine helicopters.
