Boeing To Update All of Spanish Chinook Helicopters
Dow 30 component Boeing (NYSE: BA) is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems. A top U.S. exporter, the company supports airlines and U.S. and allied government customers in 150 countries. Boeing products and tailored services include commercial and military aircraft, satellites, weapons, electronic and defense systems, launch systems, advanced information and communication systems, and performance-based logistics and training.
Boeing received its first order from a non-U.S. customer, with a contract to upgrade all 17 of Spain’s CH 47D Chinook helicopters. The order was placed through a contract Boeing and the U.S. Army signed in July that called for six new F-models for the U.S. and options for up to 150 more Chinooks for the U.S. and other international customers.
The upgrade to Spain’s fleet will turn the Ch-47D Chinook’s to the F-model configuration and will add features including the digital automatic flight control system, common avionics architecture system, and advanced cargo handling that will align Spain’s fleet of helicopters with other nations.
“The Chinook is a versatile aircraft flown by eight NATO nations, including Spain. With this contract, Spain’s Chinook crews will enjoy the platform’s current technology and capability, while the country gets an affordable upgrade that builds on its existing H-47 investment.” -Chuck Dabundo, vice president, Cargo and Utility Helicopters and H-47 program manager
Deliveries to Spain will Begin in 2021.
