Egypt will renew its helicopter fleet with CH-47F
Boeing has been awarded a $426 million Foreign Military Sale contract by the US Army to produce 12 new CH-47F Chinooks for the Egyptian Air Force. Deliveries of the new helicopters are scheduled to begin in 2026, which will see the country replace its CH-47D helicopter fleet with the modern F-model and benefit from its advanced multi-mission capabilities. "Boeing is committed to supporting the defense modernization mission of the Egyptian armed forces and ensuring the best capability for Egypt's defense and national security," said Vince Logsdon, vice president, Boeing International Business Development. The CH-47F is an advanced multi-mission helicopter for the US military and international defense forces. It contains an integrated digital cockpit management system, a Common Avionics System Architecture cockpit, and advanced load handling capabilities, which complement the mission performance and handling characteristics of the aircraft. “The F model will enhance the capabilities of Egypt's Chinook and help it effectively achieve its heavy-lift objectives,” said Ken Eland, H-47 vice president and program manager. According to information from Global Business Press, Team Chinook is led by the US Army, which with 19 allied international clients operates a fleet of more than 950 aircraft.
