Davis-Monthan AFB Open House

The Pave Hawk's primary mission is to head into hostile environments to recover people. This makes the twin-engine helicopter well-suited not only for combat, but also civil search and rescue. Twenty Pave Hawks were deployed to the New Orleans area after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Flying 24 hours a day for nearly a month, the crews saved more than 4,300 lives. Manufacturer: United Technologies/Sikorsky Aircraft; Number of crew: 4; Maximum speed: 184 mph; Range: 504 nautical miles; Ceiling: 14,000 feet
