Airbus Helicopters Inc saluted the US Coast Guard for its recent milestone achievement of reaching 1.5 million flight hours with the service’s fleet of MH-65 Dolphin patrol and search-and-rescue helicopters.
From patrolling the skies over Lake Michigan to performing life-saving rescues in the Gulf of Mexico, the Coast Guard’s MH-65 Dolphin has become the most recognisable search and rescue aircraft in the world.
“This is an enormous accomplishment for the US Coast Guard, and for Airbus,” said Chris Emerson, President of Airbus Helicopters Inc. “We are proud of the great work the men and women of the Coast Guard perform with these aircraft. They have saved countless lives and guarded our nation’s borders and ports. We look forward to working with the Coast Guard for years to come, supporting their missions by keeping this workhorse helicopter flying and serving the American people.”
