  • US Army Aviation CH-47F Chinook
  • US Army Aviation CH-47F Chinook cockpit

First 2 prototypes rolled-out in May 2002. First production model, Lot 1, delivered on July 2004 along with the MH-47G special operations variant. First of 352 production CH-47F rollout ceremony held June 2006 with first unit IOC achieved August 2007. As October 2014, 300 helicopters have been delivered to 18 active and National Guard units.

The multiyear II ( Chinook MYII ) configuration incorporates a number of product improvements such as the new Cargo-On-Off-Loading system that enables rapid re-configuration of the floor for cargo missions and the Cargo Platform Heath Environment system that provides real-time health monitoring to further reduce maintenance actions and ultimately reduce the overall life cycle cost of the product.
