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.

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 .
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 so far are “new builds”.
