The UH-1 Iroquois first entered the Air Force inventory in 1964 and was used for Strategic Air Command missile support. The UH-1N model was brought into service in 1970 and one year later, the UH-1P's arrived at Yokota, and years later were replaced by the UH-1N models Yokota now uses. Since then, these helicopters have provided humanitarian support, DV missions, and search and rescue capabilities.

UH-1Ns are primarily used at Yokota for rapid transit in and out of the downtown Tokyo area for base officials but Yokota also uses the UH-1N to conduct bilateral training missions.

Bell UH-1N Huey

Designed to meet a US Army requirement for a medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) and general utility helicopter, the UH-1 Huey was first flown on October 20, 1956. Nicknamed "Huey" because of its original "HU-1" designation, this aircraft became famous during the Vietnam War, where 7,000 of them served in a variety of roles, from MEDEVAC and search and rescue to troop transport, air assault and ground attack. As a troop transporter, the Huey revolutionized warfare, giving the Army the ability to strategically position troops in various locations that were otherwise difficult to reach in the heavy jungle environment.
