Boeing Awarded Contract for Seven Additional MH-139A Helicopters

  •  Award brings the total number of aircraft under contract with the U.S. Air Force to 26
  •  Program moves closer to full-rate production upon completing the order

PHILADELPHIA, April 29, 2024 – The U.S. Air Force has awarded Boeing a $178M contract to produce seven MH-139A aircraft and provide sustainment and training support. This order brings the total number of aircraft under contract to 26.

“Building the Grey Wolf fleet and paving the way towards full rate production is a critical step in supporting the Air Force’s modernization priorities,” said Azeem Khan, MH-139 program director. “Delivering on these commitments and getting more capability into the hands of our customers is important to their mission protecting vital national assets.”

The award comes on the heels of the first production aircraft taking its initial flight in December 2023. With the first production aircraft currently undergoing additional testing and other aircraft in various stages of production, Boeing is on track to deliver the first LRIP aircraft to the Air Force this summer.

Based off the proven Leonardo Helicopters AW139 and fitted with custom military equipment by Boeing, the MH-139 incorporates advanced state-of-the-art technology that allows operators to complete missions quickly, quietly, efficiently and safely.
