Canada Wants Six CH-47D Chinooks

By Staff Writer | April 24, 2008

The Canadian government requested a possible purchase of six CH-47D Chinooks for an estimated $375 million. Canada wants these helicopters to enhance its capabilities to fight the war on terrorism and the helicopters would have the same configurations as the U.S. helicopters, which would greatly contribute to Canada’s military capability in the coalition. The prime contractors for the project includes: The Boeing Company in Ridley Park, Pa.; Honeywell, Inc. in Phoenix, Ariz.; and FN Enterprise in Lubbock, Texas. There are discussions that six U.S. government personnel will participate in program management and technical reviews in-country for one- to two-week intervals twice annually to support site surveys and delivery of the CH-47D helicopters in-country.
