Boeing Delivers Advanced Chinook Maintenance Training Devices to Canada

Boeing [NYSE: BA] recently delivered a maintenance training system to the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) that will help prepare technicians to keep the RCAF’s CH-147F Chinook helicopters mission ready.

The Chinook Maintenance Trainer includes a complete airframe and an interactive display system that allow the technicians to gain experience addressing a number of scenarios. Boeing also delivered six training aids focused on specific items including aircraft wiring and fuel tank maintenance.


“Boeing’s training helps prepare our customer to meet a wide range of operational requirements,” said Tony Barnett, Boeing project manager for Canadian Medium-to-Heavy Lift Helicopters (MHLH) Training Systems. “This training suite complements a very capable CH-147F aircraft and will permit the RCAF to accomplish their near-term operational missions.”

This system is the most recent part of Boeing’s training for the RCAF and follows on the company having instructed more than 180 pilots and maintenance technicians on the Chinook’s systems.

The RCAF will use the system at its MHLH Maintenance Training Center, which is being constructed at Garrison Petawawa, Ontario.
