The HH-65 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 air-sea rescue helicopter, replacing the Sikorsky HH-52A Sea Guard.
A total of 99 helicopters were acquired; they were optimized for the USCG's search and rescue role tasks and given the designation HH-65A Dolphin. The HH-65 normally carries a crew of four: Pilot, Copilot, Flight Mechanic and Rescue Swimmer.
