Mechanics, aviation maintenance action message (AMAM 22-09) directs all H-60 Black Hawk units to install wire jumper kits that connect the blade cuff to the spindle assembly so all static electricity can dissipate through the airframe. Kits are already being issued to aviation units and the work specified by the AMAM must be completed by Feb 24.
NSNs have been assigned for wire jumper kit parts that can be ordered to support field requirements when one of these components is damaged, missing or needs replacement. To ensure compliance with this requirement, view the AMAM HERE.
The PNs and NSNs for the wire jumper kit components are listed below. It’s a good idea to start ordering to have stock on hand:
