Welcome Aboard!

    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 winning team.

    HSM-40 has a rich history and with you on our team we will continue to build upon this great 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” and with that, I believe you'll find your tour here both challenging and rewarding. 

    Please connect with us because we want to hear from you.  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 who will assist you in your transition.  

Again, welcome aboard! 

CDR Michael L. Burd
Commanding Officer
