Now you're in my neck of the woods. I'm a UH60M mechanic and crewchief. Its the greatest aircraft put on gods green earth.
And THIS is why I always tell the warrant officers in my unit that I won't be putting in a packet for flight school. The future belongs to autonomous
aircraft. Maintainers like me, however, will be around a lot longer. The UH60M can already fly it's own route without a pilot on the
cyclic/collective controlling it. It can even even bring you to a precise point and execute a ten foot hover without pilot control.
'Mike' is already a very sophisticated aircraft and advances like this coupled with features purported to be on the stealth H60, and we're talking
about serious military air dominance. Not just for SOF but conventional air assault tactics by the US Army as well.
