HH-65 Dolphin

The HH-65 Dolphin is a MEDEVAC-capable short-range recovery (SSR) helicopter operated by the United States Coast Guard (USCG). In 2002 there were 94 Dolphins in use by the USCG; it is the replacement for the HH-52A[?] Sikorsky Sea Guard. The HH-65A is not able to perform water landings.

The HH-65 Dolphin is used for cargo[?], drug interdiction[?], ice breaking[?], military readiness[?], pollution control[?], and search and rescue missions.

The HH-65 is known for its shrouded tail rotor and its autopilot capabilities; which can bring the aircraft into a hover or pilot it in search patterns, an ability which allows the crew to engage in other tasks.
