The Navy's New Helicopter Trainer

Post by jetrange » 14 Jan 2020, 23:21

Leonardo won the Navy's contract for the Advanced Helicopter Training System Program to replace the old TH-57 Sea Rangers. The Helicopter is the TH-73A, a variant of the Augusta Westland AW119.

Like to see how these hold up, I felt the TH-57 and Army TH-67 did pretty well. Back then we did full to the ground autoration training.

I just had flashbacks of practices autos at Pace NOLF and my On-wing instructor seeing his wife and daughter watching just outside the fence in their car. So he told me to taxi along side them so he could wave.
