Boeing has taken delivery of the 75th aft pylon and cargo ramp components for Boeing’s H-47 Chinook heavy-lift helicopter from Indian firm, Dynamatic Technologies.
The aerostructures will be transported to the US, where they will be integrated at Boeing’s facility in Philadelphia.
“We established the Chinook production line in 2014 as part of our commitment to manufacture aerospace aerostructures in India and Dynamatic has been our key partner in that journey. The future of advanced manufacturing in India looks promising,” said Pratyush Kumar, president, Boeing India.
The first set of aft pylon and cargo ramp assemblies for the Chinook was delivered by Dynamatic Technologies in February 2015.
Udayant Malhoutra, CEO & Managing Director, Dynamatic Technologies Ltd said, “We are manufacturing complex assemblies for global OEMs and have become an integral part of the worldwide supply chain, incorporating globally accepted standards of aerospace manufacturing in our facilities.”
Boeing has been working with suppliers in India to source parts and assemblies that cover critical components such as aerostructures, wire harnesses, composites, forgings, avionics mission systems and ground support equipment for aircraft that include the 777, 787, P-8, F/A-18 Super Hornet, F-15 and H-47 Chinook.
