PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 3, 2023 — The U.S. Army has awarded Boeing a contract to produce 12 new CH-47F Chinook helicopters for the Egyptian Air Force. With this $426 million foreign military sale (FMS), Egypt will replace its fleet of CH-47D Chinook aircraft with the modern CH-47F (Foxtrot) model, and benefit from its advanced multi-mission capabilities.

“The F-model aircraft will enhance Egypt’s CH-47 Chinook capabilities and help effectively accomplish its heavy-lift objectives,” said Ken Eland, vice president and H-47 program manager. “Boeing’s partnership with the Egyptian Air Force remains strong as we continue to work together to modernize their fleet.”

The Boeing CH-47F Chinook is the advanced multi-mission twin engine helicopter for the U.S. Army and other allied international defense forces. With its iconic tandem-rotor the Chinook F-model contains a fully integrated, digital cockpit management system, Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) cockpit and advanced cargo-handling capabilities complementing the aircraft’s mission performance and handling characteristics.

Boeing is committed to supporting the defense modernization mission of the Egyptian armed forces and ensuring the best capability for Egypt’s national defense and security,” added Vince Logsdon, vice president, Boeing International Business Development.

The Team Chinook is led by the U.S. Army, which with 19 allied international customers currently and collectively operates a global fleet of more than 950 CH-47 Chinook aircraft in different versions.
