The Coast Guard accepted the second newly manufactured MH-60T hull from Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation on June 3 at the Aviation Logistics Center (ALC) in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. The new hulls are key components in the service life extension program (SLEP) for the existing MH-60T Jayhawk medium range recovery helicopter fleet and will also be used for future MH-60T fleet growth as the Coast Guard transitions to a single platform for rotary wing capability. In addition to hull replacement, the sustainment effort as part of SLEP will include replacing critical dynamic components such as main rotor blades and electrical wire harnesses, with all work completed by ALC. Forty-five new hulls are currently under contract with Sikorsky.
