Description: The intent of the programme is to deliver the mandated Chinook capability, within allocated resources, to enable Chinook to be generated, operated and sustained, primarily for operations, out to at least 2040.The Chinook Programme currently includes Projects JULIUS and NEW BUY. Project JULIUS upgrades the cockpit of Chinook helicopters to a common standard in order to maximise the capability and flexibility of the aircraft. It also enables the aircraft (although not the crews) to 'swing role' between Special Forces and traditional Support Helicopter tasks. Project NEW BUY will deliver the requirement (confirmed by the 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review) for 12 additional Chinook aircraft plus a further two aircraft to replace those lost on operations. This will raise the total fleet to 60 aircraft, with an anticipated Forward Fleet of 41 aircraft.
DCA (RAG): Green
DCA text: All 14 Mk6 aircraft have now been delivered under Project NEW BUY. The modifications for 38 of the 46 Mk4 and Mk5 aircraft have been completed under Project JULIUS; the remaining Mk5 aircraft are due for completion by the end of 2016.
Start date: 2008-04-01
End date: 2017-06-30
Schedule text: The Programme remains on schedule to achieve NEW BUY Full Operating Capability in March 2017. The Programme was previously scheduled to complete by 31 March 2017, but this would not have allowed sufficient time to complete the final activities necessary to enable full realisation of benefits and to learn from the experience of the Programme. Approval has therefore been gained to delay the Programme Closure date until 30 June 2017.
