Flying the EH-101
Following the publication of the Sikorsky S-92 pilot evaluation in the Sept. 29, 2003, issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology, I received a letter from USAF Maj. Regan Patrick, a HH-60G Pave Hawk pilot in a combat search-and-rescue unit at Nellis AFB, Nev. Patrick chided me, noting that because I am not a rated helicopter pilot, I had omitted some specific performance parameters that would have been of interest to helicopter pilots in better evaluating the S-92. I discussed these points with him, and asked what queries should have been posed during the flight.
