24th September 2012 - 17:45 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


General Dynamics Canada announced on 21 September that it has been selected by Boeing to provide engineering support services on the CH-147F in-service support programme. This follows a maintenance training suite/contractor maintenance support package awarded to General Dynamics Canada by Boeing in July.

According to the company, under the CH-147F engineering support services programme, General Dynamics Canada will work with Boeing on projects that include reliability, availability and maintainability support; systems and support engineering; integrated logistics; and structural integrity engineering services. 

The company will also provide materials, services and programme management in addition to other support for the maintenance training suite for the maintenance training suite / contractor maintenance support package awarded in July; as well as supporting Boeing in the transition of the maintenance training device from Boeing’s facility to the Training Centre in Petawawa.

David Ibbetson, vice president and general manager, General Dynamics Canada, said: ‘We are pleased to have been selected once again by Boeing for in-service support to the Canadian CH-147F Chinook. This programme will add to our current experience in supporting Canadian military platforms and provide value to our customer through the introduction and sustainment of the Chinook fleet.’

Life-cycle support of the CH-147F will be delivered through a long-term Performance Based Logistics (PBL) programme that includes full system logistics and training services.
