I've been for a ride in a Blackhawk, looking for a missing GA aircraft. It was very impressive, fast.
Cool until the pilots tried to get us killed in the pattern! They are used to operations at a controlled field, and they made a non-standard pattern entry without transmitting on the proper frequency. I knew this because I had my handheld radio.
It is quite the thrill to look out the open door at a Cessna 150 about 50 feet away, that you had to cross paths with to get in that formation, on short final at 400 AGL.

Fantastic stuff. I've watched several episodes already. Many thanks.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

We occasionally get rides on Blackhawks, especially if we manage to get ourselves injured away from civilization and need a medivac Tongue. But as a non-airborne unit not intended to be doing combat drops, we are more likely to be ferried around on a Chinook. We do have a lot of medical Blackhawks in our brigade, and also a few we use for sling loading supply drops. So I work with them regularly, just not in them Sad
