The RNLAF will operate a fleet of 20 CH-47F Chinooks, the newest configuration in use by countries around the world.
The 20 CH-47F Chinooks will be a fleet equipped with the same state-of-the-art technology as the U.S.
Army, including digital automatic flight controls, a fully-integrated Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) glass cockpit, and advanced cargo handling capabilities.
The common configuration leads to lower overall life cycle costs.
The RNLAF currently flies a mix of F-model Chinooks with the Advanced Cockpit Management System (ACMS) and CH-47D Chinooks. ■
