Chandigarh, 25 March 2019 — The IAF (Indian Air Force) has formally inducted the CH 47 F(I)- Chinook heavy-lift helicopters into its inventory at Air Force Station Chandigarh. Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa, Chief of the Air Staff, was the chief guest. Various dignitaries attended the event.

IAF had signed a contract with Boeing in September 2015 for 15 Chinook helicopters. Boeing has delivered the first batch of four helicopters on schedule and would provide the last installment by March next year.

According to India’s Ministry of Defence, the addition of heavy-lift CH 47 F(I) helicopter is a significant step towards modernization of Indian Air Force’s helicopter fleet. The aircraft has been customized to suit IAF’s future requirements and capability roadmap. The helicopter has a fully integrated digital cockpit management system, advanced cargo handling capabilities and electronic warfare suite that complement the aircraft’s performance. It is capable of airlifting diverse military and non-military loads into remote locations.
