TH-67 and UH-72





The Army's TH-67 New Training Helicopter is a Bell Model 206B "JetRanger" III built by Bell Helicopter Textron Inc. The TH-67 Creek is a state-of-the-art helicopter used for initial entry rotary wing training. It replaced the aging UH-1H, which had been the Army's interim trainer since the 1988 retirement of the TH-55 Osage. In the tactical portion of pilot training, the OH-58 Kiowa is still the helicopter used. But for initial entry rotary-wing flight instruction, the TH-67 is the aircraft of choice for a new generation of Army aviators.
