Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk

Hello IFC

With the ever growing capabilities of Infinte Flight the time has come to start gaining excitement and the anticipation for Helicopters!!!

It should be no surprise the first choice of Helo of this category and should be none other than the Blackhawk. After having the opportunity this summer with the ANG to experience the Blackhawk in person though I’m not a Heli guy I love this aircraft! My uncle also works with GE and does the computers for UH-60 and other Helicopters.

" During the last 40 years, this remarkable aircraft has fought its way in and out of countless combat zones to deliver and extract troops, save lives as a MEDEVAC or casualty evacuation platform, provide critical supplies to troops, deliver emergency supplies during natural disasters, and perform as an aerial firefighter and border patroller.

Now the modern variant of this utility aircraft is taking on a new mission set — as an Armed Helicopter to provide fire suppression when supporting ground troops, as well as armed escort. With digital avionics, powerful GE engines, high strength airframe structures and composite wide chord rotor blades, today’s BLACK HAWK platform has better survivability and situational awareness, and can fly higher and carry more than its predecessors ever did.

More than 4,000 BLACK HAWK aircraft of all types are in service worldwide today. The U.S. Army is the largest operator with 2,135 H-60 designated aircraft. The same aircraft sold internationally direct from Sikorsky acquires the S-70 designation."


  • Top speed: 222 mph

  • Weight: 13,650 lbs

This helicopter is operated by over 20 countries world wide and is now being transitioned to the private sector as an experimental aircraft. There is also a variant being use to transport the US president and his Staff.

The addition of this helicopter as the first to this sim would add an amazing impact to the community allowing for a wide variety of more uses for the sim and user interaction taking advantage of the Helipads we now have in the sim.

Please show your vote by voting and I hope to see this come at some point in the future!

Im gonna take a wild guess. Did you play the new Aerofly 2023 and see how fun the blackhawk was ? Because I love that helicopter now !


No I didn’t I had no idea they added the Blackhawk!!! Imagine it with the level of detail infinite flight takes their aircraft to!!!

That new aerofly 2023 blew me away, they even have a fully modeled, and everything concord. And 28 other great aircraft.

I do really want to see helicopters in infinite flight. I would probably cross the Atlantic, like I do with every new aircraft


That would be amazing lol
