    U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Air and Marine Operations (AMO), El Paso Air Branch conducted the final flight of the UH-1N ‘Huey’ helicopter for the agency on July, 29, 2020. The UH-1N is a twin-engine, medium-lift helicopter in operation with AMO since Feb. 10, 2015. AMOs fleet of five UH-1Ns have been operated mainly along the southern border between the United States and Mexico as an air-mobility asset aiding in search and interdiction operations over rugged terrain. The UH-1N is the latest version of the Huey to be operated by a CBP component, who had previously operated other single engine variants of the UH-1 helicopter.
