“That main rotor is purpose-built for this particular aircraft,” said Shane Openshaw, Boeing FARA program manager. Side facing engine air intakes greatly reduce bird strike or flying object ingestion. More speed would almost certain equate to more range for the new Defiant-based attack helicopter, as well. Boeing submitted its proposal for its MH-139 helicopter to replace the U.S. Air Force’s aging Huey fleet.

As noted, for Boeing, the FARA competition is extremely important since the winning design is set to fundamentally alter the structure of the Army's armed helicopter fleets for years to come and is directly tied to the divestment of AH-64s, one of the company's flagship products.

With unmatched systems integration, a state-of-the-art avionics system, and advanced flight deck functionality, the modern MH-139A provides unrivaled operational flexibility and  performance that will serve the U.S. Air Force for decades to come.

Boeing merged with McDonnell Douglas, which was also the original developer of the AH-64, in 1997. The formal designation of the MH-139 comes a day after the Air Force stood up the first detachment, which will be supporting test and evaluation of the helicopter. “We are offering a very reliable, sustainable and flexible aircraft with a focus on safety and the future fight.”. The test marks a major step forward as the Sikorsky-Boeing team continues to march toward a speed requirement of 230 knots, Jay Macklin, Sikorsky’s director of future vertical lift business development, said during a June …

Boeing is committed to serving and supporting its customers. The company has secured a number of significant military contracts in recent years, including the deal to build the U.S. Navy's future MQ-25 Stingray drone tanker, the contract to build the U.S. Air Force's new T-7A Red Hawk jet trainer, in cooperation with Saab, and the winning bid to supply new MH-139 Grey Wolf helicopters, in partnership with Italian firm Leonardo, to replace the Air Force's aging UH-1N Twin Hueys. Sikorsky and Boeing have offered the first peak at their concept for a new gunship helicopter.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Air Force accepted its first MH-139 Grey Wolf helicopter Thursday, paving the way for the replacement of the aging UH-1N Huey helicopters that have patrolled missile fields for almost five decades. The Air Force plans to buy 84 helicopters over the course of the program. High main and tail rotor ground clearance ensures a safe environment for ground personnel. "The fly-by-wire design leverages more than 65 years of rotorcraft experience, proven advanced and additive manufacturing technology, and product commonality driving down risk and costs," Boeing added in its press release.

This project is supposed to serve as a lead in effort for the larger, long-term FVL plan. Key benefits of the aircraft include: The cockpit was designed to increase safety while providing excellent visibility and a reduced pilot workload.
