Boeing was given a three-year contract to produce spare rotor heads for the Army's Apache fleet which includes the AH-64D Apache attack helicopter pictured here.

The U.S. Defense Logistics Agency has awarded Boeing a three-year contract to manufacture spare main rotor heads for the U.S. Army's fleet of Apache attack helicopters. The fixed-price contract calls for an initial 100 main rotor heads, at a value of $31 million, and allows for 50 additional rotor heads, which would increase the contract value to $48 million. The Army Integrated Logistics division of Boeing Global Services & Support will perform the work at the Boeing facility in Mesa. Boeing Army Integrated Logistics and its Apache Worldwide Support subdivision provide a full range of innovative products and services to maximize the readiness of Apaches fielded around the world, including public/private partnerships for depot repairs, obsolescence management, spares and repairs demand forecasting, and inventory optimization.
