CH-47 Chinook

On 07 September 2001, the Army announced a significant acceleration of the Aviation Modernization Plan, as well as restructuring and standardizing lift and attack formations by the end of 2004. For example, heavy-lift (CH-47) companies will be reduced from 16 aircraft per company to 14. Although the number of aircraft is reduced, the number of maintenance units is not. Also in selected units, there will be more crewmembers available per aircraft. With more maintenance assets available for fewer aircraft, the operational readiness of the Army's aviation fleet should be enhanced, as it works to increase its operational readiness goal from its current 75 percent to 90 percent by 2004.
