    The Chinook is alive and well and Australia wants more.
    Posted on Sunday, May 17 @ 10:28:58 EDT by admin

    General Aviation News
    The Chinook helicopter initially considered as not having a great future when it was first developed has not only shown its resilience but also its incredible operational capability and Australia wants more.

    This has occurred in conflicts and operational areas throughout the world.  The Government of Australia, having enjoyed this fantastic helicopter’s capabilities has now requested a possible sale of seven more CH-47F Chinook helicopters from the United States of America.

    Equipping Australia with further Chinooks also sees the United States of America, improving the coalition airlift capability in the Asia-Pacific region.  Australia has long been a strategic coalition member to the United States and this move will improve the Royal Australian Army's ability to participate in combined coalition activities.

    The primary role of the Chinooks will be to provide strategic lift to supplies and ground forces primarily in humanitarian relief operations in the Asia-Pacific region.

    Should ETOPS be allowed out of Radar Range?

    No, only for aircraft with more powerplants.
    It makes no difference, it's ok.
    ETOPS is nonsense, it's only to save money.
    ETOPS is justified and the risk is ok.
    ETOPS is stretching chance, not ok.
