UH-72: Lakota Aircraft Transitions to Sustainment

BLUF: The UH-72 Lakota helicopter has transitioned to AMCOM sustainment and is no longer under PEO Aviation responsibility.

For all Lakota pilots and maintainers, make a note that Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) is now generally responsible for logistics, sustainment, and training support for fielded Lakota aircraft. AMCOM will also oversee the retrofit of new or improved aircraft subcomponents on the existing fleet.
The Light Helicopter Product Office (LHPdO), which previously oversaw these areas, will instead focus on new material solutions to optimize the enduring Lakota fleet and, when needed, future production requirements for these aircraft.
For a list of the current and relevant POCs within both LHPdO and AMCOM, check out the Utility Helicopter Newsletter (May-Jun 23) HERE.
