Photo Comment

While the US Navy rejected the UH-72 Lakota for ab-initio training, they received 5 aircraft in 2009 for the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School at Patuxent Naval Air Station, MD. This is the first one of the group that replaced the Hughes TH-6B Cayuse in the helicopter training curriculum.
