CPI awarded contract for AH-1Z assemblies

19th January 2017 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


CPI Aerostructures will continue to manufacture engine cowl assemblies and support assemblies for the AH-1Z Viper attack helicopter under a $14.8 million IDIQ contract from Bell Helicopter. The contract, announced on 17 January, will run through to December 2020.

The AH-1Z Viper is a twin-engine attack helicopter used by the US Marine Corps. Bell Helicopter was awarded a contract for AH-1Z helicopters in May 2016. This contract is part of the marine corps’ H-1 programme of record which calls for the acquisition of a total of 189 AH-1Z Viper attack helicopters and 160 UH-1Y Venom utility helicopters.

Douglas J McCrosson, president and CEO, CPI Aerostructures, said: ‘This follow-on contract illustrates the success of our strategy to secure strong positions within key national security programmes such as the AH-1Z, and then follow through with exceptional programme execution.’
