The Sikorsky MH-60 Jayhawk (ICAO: H60 / WAKE: MEDIUM) is a multi-mission, twin-engine, medium-range helicopter operated by the United States Coast Guard. Created in Second Life by Spijkers & Wingtips, the aircraft was based on the real-life MH-60 Jayhawk developed by Sikorsky Aircraft.

Background

The real-life Jayhawk was originally designated HH-60J before being upgraded and redesignated beginning in 2007.[1] The MH-60T is designed to fly a crew of four up to 300 mi (483 km) offshore, hoist up to 6 additional people on board while remaining on-scene for up to 45 minutes and return to base while maintaining an adequate fuel reserve. Normal cruising speed of the MH-60T is 135 to 140 kn (155 to 161 mph) and the aircraft is capable of reaching 180 kn (207 mph) for short durations. The MH-60T can fly at 140 kn (161 mph) for six to seven hours.[2]
