As part of the Government’s commitment to strengthening the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), the Department of National Defence is acquiring 15 advanced, multi-mission, medium- to heavy-lift helicopters, or more specifically the Canadian version of the F-model Chinook (also known as CH-147F). The delivery of Canada’s first of these versatile workhorse aircraft was marked with a ceremony held at the Canada Reception Centre in Ottawa on June 27, 2013.
