HELO SQUAD celebrates the hardworking men and women that fly, maintain and support helicopters in America's Navy. They have three main missions: 1) Plane Guard, running as search and rescue support during air operations. 2) Anti-Surface Warfare, on the lookout to intercept small craft. 3) Anti-Submarine Warfare.
Primary filming took place on board the CVN 77 U.S.S. George H.W. Bush during a "vert rep" in the Atlantic alongside a supply ship and another air craft carrier. Other scenes were filmed on base in Norfolk, Virginia and in Mayport, Florida.
Production took place for The Navy Partnership as part of a recruiting effort to show every Rating in the Navy, and show what life is like for the sailors that do each job.
