Boeing unveiled MH-139 helicopter to replace the U.S. Air Force’s “Huey”
is in competition to replace the U.S. Air Force’s UH-1N “Huey” fleet, according to Boeing revealing statement. In this industry of aerospace, upgrades and replacements happen daily. This is beneficial for us at ASAP Semi because it allows to be ahead of the game and stock up on new releases. The UH-1N helicopter is responsible for protecting intercontinental ballistic missiles and transports U.S. government and security forces. At the Air Force Association Air Warfare Symposium, Boeing’s responded to the Air Force, stating that the Northeast Philadelphia-built aircraft was built to meet the U.S. Air Force requirements. Boeing also mentioned within their response that the aircraft offers more than $1 billion in assets and a lifespan expense savings compared to the competitor aircraft. Boeings response is based on the market-leading Leonardo Helicopters AW139, a modern, non-developmental, multi-mission helicopter. Boeing is a leader in the industry with many airplanes and connections to parts. Here at ASAP Semi we have a great relationship with Boeing because we do lots of business together, which allows us to get discounted pricing and inside scoop on upcoming events.
The U.S. Air Force UH-1N Replacement Program plots to replace the current Huey fleet, which entered service in the 1970s. The replacement plot has up to 84 new helicopters. Approximately 900 AW139s are in service with more than 250 governments, militaries and companies across the world. More than 250 of the helicopters have been assembled and delivered from Philadelphia.
When replacements come out and a certain customer is changing what they fly or begin to produce many aircrafts for a project, we try to find this information out before the project. This information can help us predict what parts will be needed, so that we can stock up on them and give them the best pricing possible. Also, another thing that is important to these customers is deadlines, so here at ASAP Semi we try to focus on always being on time. So if you are even going to begin a new project or make some upgrades, let ASAP Semi know so we can get you the best service out there.
