First CH-53K King Stallion Arrives at MCAS New River

The first CH-53K King Stallion taxis across the flight line at Marine Corps Air Station New River, North Carolina May 16, 2018. The aircraft’s delivery to MCAS New River marks another on-time milestone for the U.S. Marine Corps' future heavy-lift helicopter program. Personnel with Marine Operational Test and Evaluation Squadron 1 will bring the CH-53K into the supportability test plan, where they will conduct a logistical assessment on the maintenance, sustainment and overall logistics support of the King Stallion. The CH-53K is meant to replace the Marine Corp’s fleet of CH-53E heavy-lift helicopters. The King Stallion has several upgrades over the legacy aircraft including a digital glass cockpit and fly-by-wire controls. It can externally transport 27,000 lbs. over 110 nautical miles and has a max external lift of 36,000 lbs., three times that of the legacy “E” aircraft.
