    New Mexico Army National Guard aviators, with Golf Company, 1st Battalion, 168th Aviation Regiment, conduct UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter hoist calibration procedures with 600-pound test payload at the Army Aviation Support Facility, Santa Fe, NM, September 16, 2020. Calibrating the hoist requires focus and coordination between both pilots and crew chief to safely “season” the hoist cable while the aircraft hovers. The hoist system contributes significantly to Golf Company’s aeromedical evacuation (MEDEVAC) capability when called by New Mexico authorities to conduct search-and-rescue.
