Boeing CH-47F Chinook

Derived from 414 - H-47D Chinook

Boeing CH-47F Chinook

Aimed as a low cost re-manufacture of the CH-47D and to extend the model life to 2060, the CH-47F first flew in 2001 and the first production machine came off the Boeing Pennsylvania line in July 2004.

All F-models are built with a completely re-designed and newly manufactured airframe. While some aircraft are assembled with “recycled” components from D-models, approximately 40 of the F-models produced as of 2014 are “new builds”.

Main features includes new 4.868 shp Honeywell engines, improved avionics and an upgraded airframe with larger single-piece sections to reduce part count thus reducing vibrations and the need for inspections and repairs.
