Boeing, BAE Partner to Update Chinook Helicopters; Adam Taylor Comments

BoeingLogoBoeing is partnering with BAE Systems to provide Boeing’s Chinook heavy-lift helicopters with a fly-by-wire capability by 2018, according to a Flight Global article.

The companies will be developing and integrating an active parallel actuator subsystem that they will install on the CH-47F and MH-47G helicopters and expect flight testing in early 2015.

With APAS, Chinooks will be able to “pull more performance out of their aircraft without fear of overstressing the airframe,” according to the article.

Adam Taylor, BAE Advanced Inceptors director, added the APAS system will provide “80 per cent of the benefits [of FBW aircrafts] at 20 percent of the cost.”
