The Issue

The Army National Guard Black Hawk helicopter fleet continues to age, with many units operating aircraft over 25 years old.

Recommendation

Accelerate modernization and recapitalization of the National Guard UH–60 Black Hawk fleet and continue acquisition of UH–60M helicopters.

Specifically dedicate additional UH-60M aircraft to the Army National Guard in fiscal 2019.
