The instantly-recognisable Chinook helicopter has been providing essential support to UK troops on operations all over the world for three decades.

Chinook at a glance

  • The UK operates 60 Chinook twin-rotor aircraft, based at RAF Odiham in Hampshire.
  • A heavyweight of the battlefield, Chinook can carry up to 54 troops or 10 tonnes of cargo.
  • It is primarily used for troop and load carrying but performs a crucial secondary casualty evacuation role.
  • The DE&S Helicopters Project Team is responsible for delivery of new equipment and support to the Chinook fleet.

DE&S – the force behind the armed forces

“Just like the aircraft we support, the DE&S Chinook team is ready 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year to make this essential helicopter, which has proven itself in operations time and again, available for the UK’s armed forces.”

Mark Geoghegan

DE&S Chinook Team Leader
