Abstract : The VH-92A Presidential Helicopter (VH-92A) program mission is to provide safe, reliable, and timely transportation for the President, Vice President, Foreign Heads of State, and other official parties as directed by the Director of the White House Military Office. Presidential helicopter transportation requirements are executed by Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1) and support the President worldwide and the Vice President primarily inside the National Capital Region. Mission tasking encompasses two (2) main types of missions, administrative lift (Mission Tasking 1) and contingency operations (MissionTasking 2). The VH-92A platform will replace both In-Service aircraft (VH-3D and VH-60N) and is based on Sikorsky's commercial S-92A helicopter. The acquisition strategy for the VH-92A program involves integration of mature government defined mission systems and an executive interior into the existing S-92A air vehicle.
