When we talk about the Air wolf, most people could remind an American television series that ran from 1984 until 1987, created by Donald P. Bellisario. The program centers on a high-tech military helicopter, code named Air wolf, and its crew as they undertake various missions, much-involving espionage, with a Cold War theme.
While there are other Air wolves, it’s the Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron FOUR ZERO (HSM 40), located in Hangar 1552, Naval Station Mayport, Jacksonville, Florida.
The squadron was established in 1985 which serves Helicopter Maritime Strike Wing Atlantic. Their mission is to provide quality training to Fleet Replacement Pilots and Aircrew so they may fight and win at sea.
HSM-40 has a rich history and an awesome legacy is the finest Fleet Replacement Squadron in Naval Aviation. The squadron’s mission is to provide quality training to MH-60R Fleet Replacement Pilots and Aircrew so they may fight and win at sea. Their personal challenge to you is to “Be the Best” in everything you do. The Air wolves of HSM-40 always do an outstanding job.
