📼Video Summary:
The Pave Hawk is a modified Black Hawk helicopter owned and operated by the United States Air Force. It’s meant for combat search and rescue. It usually has a crew of 4: pilot, co-pilot, and 2 Special Missions Aviators. Main parts of the helicopter include rotors, fuselage, cockpit, cabin, tail, stabilator, and the tail rotors at the very end. Refueling the helicopter can done in the air by using the re-fueling probe on the front right side. The there are two guns on the side – it’s called a GAU 2 Mini gun. The helicopter is powered by two Turboshaft Engines and the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU). Moving the helicopter is done with the controls inside of the helicopter: the Collective, the Cyclic and the Tail Rotor pedals. The Pave can also be folded up and fit inside of a larger plane for transportation.
