Delivery ahead of schedule; program on track to complete all scheduled deliveries by 2014

Tarih: Issue 47 - November 2013

Boeing has delivered the Royal Canadian Air Force’s (RCAF) fifth CH-147F Chinook helicopter one month ahead of schedule and only three months after the arrival of the first in June, expanding Canada’s military cargo capability while continuing the Chinook program’s history of excellence.

“The Canadian Chinook is one of the most advanced military cargo helicopters ever delivered to the global market and Boeing has executed the program on or ahead of schedule for every major milestone since contract award,” said Steve Parker, Boeing Director of International Chinook Programs and Canada CH-147F program manager. “These early deliveries are another example of the H-47 team’s dedication to providing this important capability to the RCAF.”
