Boeing Wins $60M Int’l Helicopter Support Contract; Peri Widener Comments

BoeingLogoBoeing has won a $60 million contract to provide the Royal Netherlands Air Force‘s Chinook and Apache helicopters with maintenance and spare parts.

Designed to increase flight-hour readiness, the integrated contractor logistics support contract will include RNLAF crew training with the U.S. Army, Boeing said Saturday.

“The Boeing and RNLAF teams have partnered to create an innovative and integrated program approach which is the first of its type globally for Boeing Rotorcraft,” said Peri Widener, rotorcraft support global services and support vice president.

The ICLS is the first contract to integrate maintenance and spare parts services of two separate supply chains.

Lt. Gen. Alexander Schitger, RNLAF commander, said that aside from being a support contract, the ICLS is a “long term partnership between Boeing and the Royal Netherlands Air Force which will increase the availability of our CH-47 Chinook and AH-64 Apache helicopters at lower costs.”

Boeing has also signed a memorandum of understanding with AAR Aircraft Component Services to expand its support of the Netherlands’ aerospace industry.
