Boeing has received an amendment to an existing performance-based logistics (PBL) contract to provide lifecycle support for the Royal Canadian Air Force's (RCAF) fleet of 15 CH-147F Chinooks.

The amendment will see Boeing continue to provide full system logistics, engineering support, supply chain, data analytics and training services to the RCAF’s Chinooks through 2023.

Operating under a 20-year PBL and training contract since 2013, the RCAF reviews its Chinook fleet support requirements every five years.

Turbo Sjogren, VP of international government services, Boeing Global Services, said: ‘We look forward to continuing our support of the RCAF and its effort to reduce maintenance costs through this long-term agreement.

'PBLs have a proven track record of increasing system availability, decreasing maintenance cycles through the use of predictive maintenance tools and reducing overall ownership costs.’

A PBL agreement allows customer to pay for a support package to an agreed level of readiness, which reduces costs while increasing mission-capability rates.
