    Wouldnt be a bad helo…
    But the engines are notorious for micro cut outs, its so annoying that alarm signals were disabled years ago in the cockpit.
    At low altitude is not really dangerous, but at higher altitudes especially in the mountains it is.
    Lot of Blackhawks crashed due to instant torque loss.
    Interestingly they arent willing to fix it for 40 years, I guess its more profitable to build a new one…
    One of the main reasons Marine One is still the good ol Sea King.

      I dont know if the Blackhawks suffer from the same as the SeaHawks, but the RDAF Seahawks are one noisy bird, making more noise than our Merlin´s and even more than a Dutch Chinook who came right over my house when NATO had that large exercise last year i believe it was.
