U.S. Army to divest all UH-60A Black Hawk helicopters

The US Army will divest all UH-60A Black Hawk helicopters out of service by 2024.

U.S. Army plans to get rid of all its UH-60 A-model Black Hawks from the National Guard by 2022 and the active duty force by 2024.

The first UH-60A put into service in 1979 when it was delivered to aviation components of the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions.

Helicopters have served in Grenada, Panama, Iraq, Somalia, Balkans, Afghanistan and the Middle East for its 40 years of service.

The US Army will replace the UH-60A helicopters with the H-60M and the UH-60V.
