N J Donaldson: 2435. Weight History of the U.S. Army CH-47 Helicopter. 1998.



This paper provides a brief review of the weight history of the U.S. Army CH-47 Series Helicopter. The CH-47 Series is a twin engine, tandem rotor helicopter filling the U.S. Army’s medium lift cargo mission. The aircraft can carry a variety of internal and external cargo. The design is essentially unchanged from the 30,000 pound A model of the early 60’s to the current 50,000 pound CH-47D. A proposed Improved Cargo Helicopter will provide continued medium lift capability at reduced operating and support costs. Data is provided from a number of informal sources. This paper is not intended as a formal technical or specification description by either the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command or by Boeing Helicopters.
