The Eurocopter HH-65 Dolphin Helicopter is a twin-engined, single main rotor, MEDEVAC-capable Search and Rescue (SAR) helicopter operated by the United States Coast Guard (USCG). It is a variant of the French-built Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin.

The SA366 G1 Dauphin version was selected by the United States Coast Guard in 1979 as its new short range recovery (SRR) air-sea rescue helicopter, replacing the Sikorsky HH-52A Sea Guard. Unlike the HH-52, the HH-65A is not able to perform water landings. As part of the ongoing H-65 Conversion / Sustainment Project, all HH-65Bs have been upgraded to HH-65C configuration. The helicopter has also been equipped with upgraded Turbomecca Arriel 2C2 engines. There has also been a re-designation of HH-65Cs to MH-65Cs reflects the installation of armament and a significantly upgraded communications package. The MH-65C normally carries a crew of four: Pilot, Copilot, Flight Mechanic and Rescue Swimmer. The MH-65C Dolphin is used for homeland security patrols, cargo, drug interdiction, ice breaking, military readiness, pollution control, and search and rescue missions. The MH-65C is known for its Fenestron tail rotor. Another of its known features is its autopilot capabilities, which can complete an unaided approach to the water and bring the aircraft into a stable 50 ft hover; an important safety feature in darkness and/or inclement weather. With its autopilot capabilities MH-65C can also automatically fly a search pattern; an ability which frees the pilot and copilot to concentrate on sighting and searching for the object. Certified for single-pilot instrument flight rules (IFR) operation, the HH-65A was the first helicopter certified with a four-axis autopilot, allowing for hands-off hover over a pre-determined location.
The Dolphin is usually deployed from shore but it can be deployed from medium and high endurance Coast Guard Cutters, as well as the Polar Icebreakers. The Dolphin’s main jobs are: search and rescue, enforcement of laws and treaties (including drug interdiction), polar ice breaking, marine environmental protection including pollution control, and military readiness.
When deployed from an icebreaker, the helicopter acts as the ship’s eyes, searching out thinner and more navigable ice channels. They also have the job of airlifting supplies to villages isolated by winter, or transporting scientists to conduct remote research.

The MH-65C is also used to patrol the Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) around Washington, D.C., also known as the National Capital Region (NCR). Seven new-build HH-65Cs were acquired for this armed ‘airborne use of force’ mission.

Did you know that 75% of the HH-65’s structure including rotorhead, rotor blades and fuselage consists of corrosion-resistant composite materials? Coast Guard pilots have nicknamed the Dolphin “Tupperwolf” (because of the aircraft’s high composites content) and Airwolf.

The MH-65C Dolphin fleet has home ports in 17 cities on the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, Hawaii, and the Great Lakes region. Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron (HITRON) Jacksonville was the first operational Coast Guard unit to employ the MH-65C and have a total of 10 assigned to replace the MH-68As.
