Description: The Chinook is the primary heavy-lift support helicopter within Defence. The Chinook is a key component of Future Force 2020; it supports the rapid deployment, in-theatre movement; insertion, re-supply and extraction of Joint Forces along with their equipment. The UK currently operates a fleet of 46 aircraft - 21 Mk2/2A, 8 Mk3 and 17 Mk4. The Chinook Programme includes a project to upgrade the fleet with a digital cockpit (Project JULIUS); and a project to purchase 14 additional aircraft (Project New Buy).
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: New Buy: The Department has continued to actively manage a delivery strategy with the contractor; after approval there was no negative impact on the schedule. Julius: The programme is on-track to its revised schedule.
Start date: 2008-04-01
End date: 2017-03-31
Schedule text: New Buy: Although there is some risk that Initial Operating Capability (IOC) of Jul 15 will not be achieved by the approved date, we nonetheless currently forecast that Full Operating Capability (FOC) of Mar 17 will be achieved to schedule. JULIUS: Achieved IOC in June 2012 (9 months late) with limited Release to Service. Subsequent work resolved the software problems and the overall schedule has been adjusted: we currently estimate that the original FOC of Oct 15 will still be achieved.
