CH-47F Block II First Flight


Helis, March 28, 2019 - The first Boeing CH-47F Chinook Block II off the assembly line performed maiden flight on March 28, 2019 at the company’s Philadelphia facility,

This is the first of three Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) aircraft to be used in Army’s flight test program which eventually will lead to more than 500 Chinooks to be upgraded to this new configuration.

The CH-47F Block II combines new technologies, including the Advanced Chinook Rotor Blade, redesigned fuel tanks, a sturdier fuselage, and an improved drivetrain – all aimed at increasing lift capability.

With these technological advancements, Chinook Block II will provide commonality across the fleet and keep the Chinook as a workhorse until the 2060s.
