The Boeing and Dynamatic Technologies team review the 75th aft pylon and cargo ramp components for Boeing’s H-47 Chinook heavy-lift helicopter.

Boeing and Dynamatic Technologies announced the delivery of the 75th aft pylon and cargo ramp components for Boeing’s H-47 Chinook heavy-lift helicopter. Dynamatic manufactures critical components for the H-47 Chinook, one of the world’s most advanced multi-mission, heavy-lift transport helicopters. The aerostructures will be integrated at Boeing’s facility in Philadelphia.

“This delivery marks a significant milestone in the success of the Make in India program and our commitment towards building indigenous manufacturing capabilities,” said Pratyush Kumar, president, Boeing India. “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.”

Dynamatic Technologies delivered the first set of aft pylon and cargo ramp assemblies for the Chinook in February 2015. This first delivery was mentioned by India Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his inaugural address at the Aero India exhibition in 2015.

 “This is a remarkable milestone in our partnership with Boeing and the Chinook program to deliver high quality aerospace products from India,” said Udayant Malhoutra, CEO & Managing Director, Dynamatic Technologies Ltd. “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.”

The Chinook is a true multi-role, vertical-lift platform, emphasizing heavy-lift transport of troops, artillery, equipment, and fuel. It is the helicopter of choice for humanitarian disaster-relief operations, in missions such as transportation of relief supplies and mass evacuation of refugees.
