Boeing has received a $10 million contract modification to support the US Army’s CH-47F Block II Engineering and Manufacturing Development programme.

The company was issued with a low rate initial production notice by the US Army in January, which could see the service buy up to 14 CH-47F Chinook Block II aircraft between FY2021 through to FY2022. The army has plans to upgrade more than 500 Chinooks to the new configuration.

Work on this contract will run through July 2021.
