The Coast Guard completed upgrades to its fleet of MH-60J Jayhawk medium range recovery helicopters in August 2016. Redesignated as MH-60Ts, the upgraded helicopters received new flight instruments and avionics, communications and navigation equipment. Internal configuration changes included the installation of a new digital glass cockpit with five multifunction display screens for flight and mission management capabilities. These upgrades dramatically improved reliability, mission performance and safety while addressing new Federal Aviation Administration navigation performance requirements. The program also upgraded and standardized the helicopters’ existing engines and completed work to extend the helicopters’ service lives for an additional 10,000 flight hours. The fleet of 45 MH-60Ts – including 42 upgraded helicopters and three Navy helicopters that were converted to MH-60Ts – transitioned to the sustainment community for continued operations and support Nov. 29, 2016. The upgrades will support MH-60T operations through 2027.
