Boeing Receives US$265 M for Chinook from USASOAC

Boeing recently signed a US$265 million contract for nine more MH-47G Block II Chinook helicopters that employees in its Philadelphia, U.S., plant will assemble for the U.S. Army Special Operations Aviation Command (USASOAC).
 
Boeing is now on contract for 24 of the next-generation Chinooks. The MH-47G Block II Chinook features an improved structure and weight reduction initiatives such as new lighter weight fuel pods that increase performance, efficiency, and commonality across the fleet. 
 
The new Chinooks will provide the Army with more capability for challenging missions.
 
“The G-Model is a critical asset for the Army, our nation, and the defence industrial base,” said Andy Builta, vice president and H-47 programme manager. “We’re honoured that the Army’s special operators trust us to deliver it.”
 
Boeing has more than 4,600 employees in Pennsylvania supporting H-47 Chinook, V-22 Osprey, MH-139A Grey Wolf and a number of services and engineering efforts. The company’s presence, including suppliers and vendors, supports an estimated 16,000 total jobs in Pennsylvania.
