Boeing Gets $160M Army Contract for Chinook Rotor Blade Logistics Support

Boeing (NYSE: BA) has landed a five-year, $160M contract to continue providing logistics management and overhaul support for the U.S Army‘s H-47 Chinook helicopter rotor blades.

The company said Monday it will repair, maintain, overhaul and manage stock availability of rotor blades used in the service branch’s more than 450 Chinooks.

The contract continues work that Boeing began in 2012, and also tasks the company to develop methods that would help the service branch preserve blades deemed unusable.

Kathleen Jolivette, Army services director at Boeing’s global services business, said that supply availability is a significant factor to the operational functionality of the Chinook, which is leveraged in several military missions.
