15th June 2015 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Army Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD) awarded a five-year contract to extend its partnership with Boeing that supports the overhaul of complex parts for the army's CH-47 Chinooks and AH-64 Apaches, the company announced on 12 June.

The agreement also gives the army access to the company's supply network and platform service. The contract covers a one-year base period and four one-year options. The total value of the contract is of $238 million.

Boeing and CCAD have worked together since 2004; handling technical, engineering, and logistics support services as well as component spares and airframe support management.

Tim Sassenrath, vice president and program manager, Boeing Rotorcraft Support, said: 'Our partnership at CCAD allows Boeing and the army to bring the best of both government and industry to aircraft readiness and availability. Together we have seen successful improvements in affordability, repair turnaround time and surplus inventory and we look forward to continuing our successful legacy with the depot.'

Lisa Stuart, program manager and Boeing site lead at CCAD, said: 'Having employees at the depot working with army maintenance personnel gives Boeing unique agility and flexibility in helping our customers meet their fast-paced mission requirements. From routine maintenance support to unscheduled repairs of battle-damaged aircraft, we both benefit from the partnership.'
