The Sikorsky MH-60G/HH-60G Pave Hawk, a twin turboshaft engine helicopter in service with the U.S. Air Force, is a derivative of the UH-60 Black Hawk and a member of the Sikorsky S-70 family. Incorporating the U.S. Air Force PAVE electronic systems program, the HH-60/MH-60 Pave Hawk's primary mission is insertion and recovery of special operations personnel, especially under stressful conditions, including search and rescue (SAR). Both versions conduct day or night operations into hostile environments, and the versatile HH-60G may also perform peace-time operations, such as civil search and rescue, emergency aeromedical evacuation (MEDEVAC), disaster relief, international aid, and counter-drug activities.
