In 2017 HP Helicopters was certified by the federal government to produce FAA certified civilian versions of Sikorsky’s UH60A helicopters under our own Type Certificate. That gives our company a unique ability to upgrade and modify this already impressive aircraft for civilian operation or resale. The Sikorsky UH60 Blackhawk helicopter is still in production today and is the current preferred aircraft for military and emergency response agency utility helicopter missions. With the price of brand new Sikorsky Blackhawk helicopters exceeding $20,000,000, our modified HP60 can meet mission requirements at a fraction of the price.


Helicopter 286 is our white and black “flagship” helicopter that has undergone a full demilitarization and revitalization program and is now one of the nicest and best equipped civilian HP60 helicopters operated by a non-government entity. We are proud of our product and operate it regularly in a variety of mission profiles. The helicopter’s primary role is emergency response firefighting and utility/aerial construction. We are currently certifying many additional modifications and look forward to additional options and configurations which are coming soon.
