  • Boeing Australia - Boeing Awarded US Army Contract for 14 Additional CH-47F Chinook Helicopters
    for Australia and the United Arab Emirates This new aircraft sale brings our Chinook backlog to more than 200 aircraft for both domestic and international customers worldwide said Leanne Caret H 47 Programs vice president Boeing s recent 130 million investment to create a world class Chinook manufacturing facility near Philadelphia means we are well positioned to respond to this demand Seven of the new Chinooks will be delivered to the Australian Defence Force and six aircraft will be delivered to the United Arab Emirates under the terms of a previously announced Foreign Military Sales agreement between the U S government and the two countries One additional aircraft is to be delivered to the U S Army to fulfill its own requirements This sale is indicative of the tremendous interest from customers around the world who need best in class multirole heavy lift capabilities for military and humanitarian missions Caret added The H 47 program is at the midpoint of executing a multiyear contract for 191 CH 47F Chinook aircraft that was awarded in August 2008 and originally valued at 4 3 billion In November Boeing submitted a proposal to the U S government for a second multiyear contract for 155 Chinooks for the U S Army This second five year firm fixed price proposal would provide the Army with close to the full complement of 464 Chinooks outlined in the Department of Defense program of record and would yield double digit percentage savings over a single year procurement strategy A decision is expected early next year Since completing the first CH 47F production aircraft in August 2006 Boeing has trained and equipped eight U S Army units and is in the process of equipping the ninth Six units have completed deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan where the helicopter has

  • Boeing Australia - Boeing, CSIRO Design Feedstock Systems to Sustain Aviation Biofuels Industry
    on commercial and military aircraft so the challenge now is to find the right way to scale up feedstock production so these new fuels are both environmentally and economically sustainable said Michael Edwards general manager of Boeing Research Technology Australia The Sustainable Feedstocks for Aviation Fuels program builds on the recommendations of the Flight Path to Sustainable Aviation roadmap released in May 2011 and continues the strong research relationship developed between Boeing and CSIRO over more than 20 years The roadmap made a compelling case for the development of a new Australian bio based aviation fuel industry generating some 12 000 clean energy jobs over the next 20 years especially in regional areas cutting greenhouse emissions and reducing Australia s reliance on aviation fuels imports by 2 billion per annum said Edwards The program is being led by CSIRO s Deborah O Connell PhD an internationally recognised expert in bioenergy and sustainability The Sustainable Feedstocks for Aviation Fuels program will identify and trial new fuel sources that are compatible with existing land uses with the ultimate goal of developing commercially viable feedstock to fuel supply chains this decade said O Connell The first phase of the Sustainable Feedstocks for Aviation Fuels program will concentrate on three key elements over the next 12 months including Assessment of current and new biomass production systems based on feedstocks such as grasses and short rotation trees in combination with grazing or cropping in regional Queensland Assessment of potential fuel conversion technology to convert these feedstocks into jet fuels and Assessment of appropriate production systems and technology types that will match with local infrastructure Over the longer term Boeing and CSIRO hopes to attract further investment and partnerships to develop and commercialise the most prospective options as well as to test and implement sustainability assessment
