Dutch Air Force Gets First Boeing CH-47F Chinook

The Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) has taken the delivery of first of a total 20 ordered Boeing CH-47F Chinook helicopters with an upgraded cockpit.

The 20 CH-47F Chinooks will be a fleet equipped with the same technology as the US 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. 

Deliveries to the RNLAF are expected to continue into 2021.
