Boeing announces Canadian CH-47F suppliers

30th January 2012 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing has selected a number of firms for the first group of work packages for in-service support of 15 Boeing CH-47F Chinook helicopters. According to Boeing, L-3 Communications MAS, Raytheon Canada Limited, and L-3 Electronic Systems will work on the CH-147F for the Canadian Forces.

Following an open competition, L-3 Communications MAS (Mirabel, Quebec) will perform technical publications; Raytheon Canada Limited (Calgary, Alberta) will perform supply chain support; and L-3 Electronic Systems (Enfield, Nova Scotia) will perform logistics support analysis. Life-cycle support of the aircraft will be delivered through a long-term Performance Based Logistics (PBL) programme that will provide full system logistics and training services.

The company said competitions are ongoing with Canadian firms for additional in-service support work packages, including support and test equipment; contractor maintenance support for the maintenance training suite; and engineering support services. Boeing expects to announce those selections later this year.

The Canadian government announced that it would acquire 15 CH-47F Chinooks to address the Canadian Forces Medium-to-Heavy Lift Helicopter requirement in August 2009. Production of the fleet is under way at Boeing’s facility at Ridley Township, Pa. Delivery of CH-147Fs to the main operating base at Petawawa, Ontario, will begin in 2013.
