Maj. Zach Roycroft and Tony Arrington, 413th Flight Test Squadron, are the first Air Force pilots to earn a Type Rating on the AW-139 helicopter in Whippany, N.J. July 29, 2019. The Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. pilots completed the five-week course on the civilian counterpart to the Air Force’s new MH-139 helicopter. The MH-139 will replace the Air Force’s aging UH-1N Huey. A Type Rating is a Federal Aviation Administration certification to fly a specific aircraft. (Courtesy photo)
