Plano, Texas. 03 October 2018. Boeing will continue its support for the U.S. Army’s inventory of H-47 Chinook rotor blades with a new $160 million contract award.
The five-year performance-based logistics agreement extends work that began in 2012 and calls for the continued management of stock availability and the overhauling of all Chinook blades for the U.S. Army. Boeing is responsible for rotor blade maintenance, repair and overhaul, as well as developing innovative ways to save blades that would typically be removed from service. There are more than 450 U.S. Army Chinooks worldwide.
