Welcome to the HSM-40 AIRWOLVES, the finest Fleet Replacement Squadron in Naval Aviation.  I am honored to be your Commanding Officer and look forward to having you join our family.

HSM-40 has a rich history and an awesome legacy. Our squadron’s mission is to provide quality training to MH-60R Fleet Replacement Pilots and Aircrew so they may fight and win at sea.  My personal challenge to you is to “Be the Best” in everything you do. I believe you'll find your tour here both challenging and rewarding. 

Do not hesitate to connect with us. Explore our website, visit us on Facebook, call us, or send us an email.  The Squadron Duty Office (Quarterdeck) can be contacted 24 hours a day at DSN 270-6332 or Commercial (904) 270-6332.

I encourage you to contact your sponsor if you already have orders in hand. If you have verbal orders, a sponsor can be assigned to you early in order to make your transfer as smooth as possible. Give us a call at (904) 270-6332 Ext. 220 for sponsor assignment, if you cannot contact your sponsor or do not know who they are.

Welcome to the family!

Commanding Officer
