Aviation News

DefenseNews reports on Admiral Papp’s comments regarding Coast Guard aviation. Two basic messages, The Coast Guard may be able to ride the coat tails the Air Force’s procurement of replacement H-60s, and The C-27s will be put to work very quickly.

Replacement of existing MH-60s is still a long way away. There is also the Army’s procurement of new rotary wing aircraft that might produce a more capable replacement.

  1. According to the RAND study and the ICGS Deepwater contract the 60s are supposed to be starting to be replaced with none left in 2022. 2 are supposed to be replaced by the end of this year.

    The report also shows all of the HH-65 were supposed to be gone last year.

    How is that working out?

    • So what are you trying to say ADM Papp could grave done differently the past four years? He has been everywhere lobbying for updated USCG assets. Hard to get when the economy has been down the tubes and with cuts in government spending.
