Superhawk Emerges As Promising New Multi Purpose Helicopter

The Sikorsky H-60 Black Hawk has long served as the backbone of U.S. military aviation for troop transport, medivac, and utility missions. However, with the venerable Black Hawk approaching the end of its service life, militaries are seeking a next-generation replacement to fill this vital role. An excellent option is the H-92 Superhawk by Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation.

Designed as a 21st century successor to the Black Hawk, the H-92 Superhawk provides modernized performance and capabilities that make it a trustworthy alternative for military and government operators. Powered by two GE T700-GE-701D turboshaft engines, the H-92 has over 20% more power and greater lift capacity compared to the Black Hawk.

Advanced composite rotor blades decrease vibration and noise, while the H-92’s fly-by-wire flight control system provides reliability and handling improvements. With a cruising speed of 306 km/h, the Superhawk outperforms its Black Hawk predecessor to get troops and cargo to their destinations quickly.

The versatile H-92 is built for adaptability with a spacious cabin and beefed up airframe that enables numerous mission-specific configurations. Options include a retractable in-flight refueling probe, armored crew seats, forward-looking infrared, and external cargo sling loads up to 12,000 pounds.

With over 17,000 Black Hawk derivatives ordered since 1979, operators can count on Sikorsky’s proven track record for delivering rugged, dependable aircraft that soldiers trust their lives with. The 21st century H-92 Superhawk carries on this legacy while bringing next-gen performance and capabilities militaries demand. Its superb combination of enhanced utility, power, speed, and endurance make the H-92 a trustworthy alternative ready to fill the Black Hawk’s shoes.
