BREVARD COUNTY • PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, FLORIDA – The 301st Rescue Squadron partnered with the 45th Security Forces Squadron’s Military Working Dog Section to provide HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter flight familiarization to one of their dogs, Nero, and two handlers.
The familiarization of these Military Working Dog’s to the noise, winds and aircraft movements is integral to their training.
The Sikorsky MH-60G/HH-60G Pave Hawk is a twin-turboshaft engine helicopter in service with the United States Air Force. It is a derivative of the UH-60 Black Hawk and incorporates the U.S. Air Force PAVE electronic systems program. The HH-60/MH-60 is a member of the Sikorsky S-70 family.
The MH-60G Pave Hawk’s primary mission is insertion and recovery of special operations personnel, while the HH-60G Pave Hawk’s core mission is recovery of personnel under hostile conditions, including combat search and rescue.
Both versions conduct day or night operations into hostile environments. Because of its versatility, the HH-60G may also perform peacetime operations such as civil search and rescue, emergency aeromedical evacuation (MEDEVAC), disaster relief, international aid and counter-drug activities.
