Reset lands Boeing $41.5 million

The US Army has awarded Boeing a $41.5 million contract for the refurbishment of 70 Apache AH-64 Helicopters under the Reset program.

This is a follow-on to a contract awarded in 2004 for the reset of 15 Apaches.

Work for this program is performed at the Boeing Logistics Support Systems Williams Gateway site in Mesa, Arizona, and is designed to quickly return heavily used Apaches and Apache Longbows to active service following their return from operational deployments.

The Apache Reset program goal is to return aircraft to service in 60 days. Work performed includes intense cleaning and repair of all components, material management and parts for critical shortage items, repairs for battle and crash damage and complete testing of the aircraft after all maintenance is finished.
