The CHE helicopter is being developed to provide the Navy and the Marine Corps with a shipboard helicopter with greatly increased lift capability.

It was intended to be a modified version of the CHD model; however, it now more closely resembles a new aircraft because of improvements incorporated during the development stage. The Navy expected to complete engineering development in.

[United States. General Accounting Office.]. THE PENTAGON – Amid ongoing testing challenges and delays in the Marine’s CHK heavy-lift helicopter program, the legacy CHE fleet is seeing its highest reliability in decades and is focused on modernization efforts to keep it ready through or beyond.

The recently published Marine Corps Aviation plan, provided an overview and update with regard to the CHk program. The CHE Super Stallion entered service in and is the only heavy lift helicopter in the DoD rotorcraft inventory.

The current force of eight active component HMHs and one reserve component HMH(-) has supported heavy [ ]. CHE imposes different training requirements than those for the CHD maintenance personnel and the CHE's are now planned to be assigned to independent squadrons for support rather than CHD units.

Our latest report "Status of the CHE Helicopter Program"', dated Febru. Mechanical Diagnostics System (IMDS) equipped CHE helicopter. Seven CHE components selected upon criticality, perceived benefit, and expense, were evaluated via SAFE. There are two ways to execute SHUM.

The first is to implement a CHE SAFE program to provide a Fatigue Life Expended (FLE) metric based upon component specific aircraft usage. The Marine Corps itself is the source of the disconnect. The HLR program initially called for new-build helicopters derived from the CHE Super Stallion design, with initial flight tests inand initial operating capability (IOC) in IOC was defined as a detachment of 4 aircraft, with combat ready crews, and prepared to deploy with all required equipment and spares.

The program fell under the designation of "Heavy Helicopter Experimental" ("HH/X") and required a multi-role helicopter platform capable of a mile range, top speed of miles per hour and the ability to lift up to 8,lbs of cargo, passengers or medical litters.

Several firms jumped into the requirement, eager for contract dollars. The CHE Super Stallion is the Marine Corps’ primary heavy lift helicopter and has been in service for over 30 years.

There are currently CHE aircraft in operation. The CH Sea Stallion (Sikorsky S) is a family of heavy-lift transport helicopters designed and built by Sikorsky ally developed for use by the United States Marine Corps, it is currently in service with Germany, Iran, Israel, and United States Air Force operated the HH "Super Jolly Green Giant" during the late– and post–Vietnam-War era, updating most of Manufacturer: Sikorsky Aircraft.

The CHK will be considered the most powerful helicopter in the Department of Defense and is scheduled to completely replace the CHE Super Stallion by Description.

The CHK helicopter is a new-build design variant and replacement for. The Corps took delivery of its first CH King Stallion in Maybut since then the heavy-lift helicopter has faced a series of mechanical issues that are impacting its expected operational date. Vertical Magazine got the latest status update on the CHK program as of to the CHE, the CHK is an all-new helicopter that is First Monster CHK King Stallion : Joseph Trevithick.

It has a seven-blade main rotor and a four-blade canted tail rotor and is powered by three General Electric TGEA turboshaft engines, each rated at 4, shp.

The S prototype made its first flight in Since then it was the largest and most powerful helicopter outside Russia.

The Sikorsky H The CHE Super Stallion is the US Marine Corps' primary heavy-lift asset. Its mission is to provide combat assault transport of heavy weapons, equipment, supplies and troops. From“CHG Mittlerer Transporthubschrauber” derivatives of the CHD Sea Stallions were built in Germany.

Though they share the CHE’s ability to lift medium-heavy loads, including up to 2 of Germany’s Wiesel armored infantry support vehicles, the CHGs lack the 3rd engine and additional features of the improved CHE Super Stallions that have been operated by.

The CHX program would upgrade of the Corps' CHEs to "like new" condition at a cost of about $21 million apiece, about one-fifth the cost of a new replacement helicopter.

Sikorsky Aircraft received a $3 billion System Development and Demonstration contract on April 5, to develop a replacement for the U.S. Marine Corps CHE heavy lift helicopter. Heavy Lift Replacement [HLR] The CH is the only marinized heavy-lift helicopter in the world, and the CHE is the Marine Corps only heavy-lift helicopter.

Sikorsky awarded $M Contract for CH and MH Repair Support. Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., Stratford, Connecticut, is awarded a $, firm-fixed-priced, performance-based logistics requirements contract for logistics and repair support for 98 components in support of CH and MH aircraft weapon replaceable assembly components and their related shop replaceable assembly.

In addition the first aircraft into the test program has achieved flight envelope expansion to knots for the U.S. Marine Corps' CHK King Stallion heavy lift helicopter program. In addition the first aircraft into the test program has achieved flight envelope expansion to knots for the U.S. Marine Corps’ CHK King Stallion heavy lift helicopter program.

"Adding a second aircraft into flight status signifies another milestone for the CHK program," said Mike Torok, Sikorsky's vice president of CHK Programs. The Corps CHEs are also getting an upgraded engine, from the TGE to thecurrently used on the U.S. Navy’s MHEs. Other upgrades for the both the CHD and 53E models include integration of a Blue Force Tracking System, “which is a combination of a system started by the Army called FBCB2 (Force XXI Battle Command Brigade and Below),” Perrin said.
