Training boosts RAN MH-60R deployments

22nd February 2019 - 14:00 GMT | by Trevor Nash in Nowra, NSW


The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) is now able to deploy eight MH-60R Seahawk maritime combat helicopter flights onboard its frigates and destroyers as well as, if required, LHD vessels.

This milestone was achieved ahead of schedule and according to CAPT Grant O’Loughlan, deputy commander Fleet Air Arm, based at HMAS Albatross in Nowra, NSW, this ‘largely reflects the integrated training being provided by 725 Squadron’ at the Seahawk Simulation & Warfare Centre (SSWC), also located at HMAS Albatross.

The RAN’s 24 MH-60R aircraft are used both by 725 Squadron in its training role and operationally, by 816 Squadron.
