089 – OH-58 Kiowa
former U.S. Army CWO2
‘Army Aviation Month’ marches on with a shift to our familiar ‘aircraft series’ format and a look at the OH-58 Kiowa. Ryan Robicheaux, a former CWO2 in the U.S. Army, joins us to discuss this helicopter that is small in stature but huge in capability and adored by the ground forces it defends. Ryan also discusses the many OH-58 military and civilian variants, as well as the somewhat unconventional plan to replace it.
