Every year the Army disposes of government property, including aircraft

The U.S. Army Contracting Command-Redstone on behalf of Program Executive Office, Aviation, Logistics, Black Hawk Exchange and Sales Team (BEST) Program, announced Monday they have another UH-60A Black Hawk helicopter up for sale.

“The following property is available for sale through negotiation at fixed prices,” the Army said in contract documents released Monday. A reasonable period of time not to exceed 15 days shall be given the buyer to indicate its desire to purchase the item and arrange satisfactory arrangements for payment, pickup, handling, and transportation charges. However, when more than one buyer has indicated interest in the item, the sale will be on a ''first-come, first-served'' basis. Payment must be made within 30 calendar days after purchase.

The Sikorsky UH-60A Black Hawk medium lift utility helicopter (S/N: 79-23343) is located at the BEST Aircraft Consolidation Facility in Huntsville, Ala.

Some 271 H-60 Black Hawk helicopters have been divested since the BEST program began in 2014 resulting in $230 million in revenue. The H-60A and L models are out of production but are widely used by U.S. civilian contractors, federal/state agencies and international customers. The BEST program allows other governmental activities, commercial firms and foreign governments to acquire used flyable aircraft, rapidly at an affordable cost.
