Army Depot and Boeing Partner to Repair Apaches and Chinooks

December 01, 2014 in Defense

From airframe dents to aircraft broken in two, the Corpus Christi, Texas Army Depot has seen battle-damaged helicopters and knows how to fix them. In 1961, the depot started as a small facility tucked away on the sprawling Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi, Texas. It has grown into the world’s largest rotary repair, overhaul maintenance and component center.  Boeing teams of field service representatives, engineers and logistics specialists partner with the depot to support the AH-64 Apache and the CH-47 Chinook. They collaborate to modify, repair or overhaul the rotorcraft to like-new condition.

“Our team’s and my main objective as a field service representative is to return the aircraft to the field, support the war effort and make sure the souls in that aircraft have a safe environment in which to fly,” said Robert Rabon, Boeing field service representative.
