In 2020, Boeing completed the delivery of 15 CH-47F(I) Chinook helicopters to the Indian Air Force.
The CH-47F is an advanced multi-mission helicopter for the U.S. Army and international defense forces. It contains a fully integrated, digital cockpit management system, Common Aviation Architecture Cockpit and advanced cargo-handling capabilities that complement the aircraft’s mission performance and handling characteristics.
In July, 2018 Boeing and India took a significant step toward modernizing the Indian Air Force’s helicopter fleet by completing the first flight of Chinook helicopters.
On 10 February 2019, Boeing announced the ahead-of-schedule arrival of the first four CH-47F (I) Chinooks for the Indian Air Force at the Mundra Port in Gujarat.
The ahead-of-schedule arrival of the Chinooks validates Boeing’s commitment to delivering on its promise of modernizing India’s defense forces. Through its current partnerships with Indian Air Force and Indian Navy, Boeing has ensured high rate of mission readiness and increased operational capabilities.
