The aerospace company has been tapped to provide engine support for the US Army’s CH-47 Chinook fleet.
Honeywell Aerospace has been awarded a four-year, US$476 million ($615 million) indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide engine support to the US Army’s CH-47 Chinook helicopters.
Specifically, Honeywell has been tasked with ensuring the fleet has spare engines to support future missions and available engines for Boeing’s Philadelphia Production Line through 2024.
This is expected to serve both the US Army and foreign partner nations’ new aircraft requirements.
The engines are set to be assembled and tested at Honeywell’s production facility in Phoenix.
“Supporting the US Army Chinook Program is a bedrock principle for Honeywell Aerospace,” Steven Williams, vice president of defense aftermarket, Honeywell Aerospace, said.
“Our mission is manufacturing, maintaining, and modernising T55 engines for the critical heavy-lift mission, and we take this mission seriously.
“We are very proud to continue our strong relationship with PEO Aviation, the US Army and our warfighter.”
