The fleet of 16 Seahawk ‘Classic’ helicopters contributes to the Navy’s anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare capabilities. The Seahawk is supported through a combination of maintenance contracts primarily with BAE Systems Australia and Asia Pacific Aerospace, the Navy in-unit maintenance, and support from the helicopter manufacturer Sikorsky.

The Seahawk is an ageing aircraft with a number of mission system related obsolescence issues under careful management.

During 2014-15, the focus will be on careful management of the principal Seahawk ‘Classic’ sustainment risks to maintain a viable embarked helicopter capability as the new Seahawk ‘Romeo’ capability is progressively introduced
