Modification and Upgrade Program

The UH-1H has served the United States military for many years, setting the performance standards for all helicopters. Since the start of production, over 10,000 of these flying workhorses have been built. Today, over 5,000 of these reliable Bell products are still flying in more than 45 countries around the world.

To meet the ever increasing demand for vertical lift aircraft with greater safety margins, HPI has developed a modernization program for the UH-1H helicopter to provide increased performance, reliability, and safety in a cost effective upgrade program. This upgrade program will generate a NEW UH1H HP helicopter that will compete and exceed newly manufactured aircraft made today.
