December 15: Australian Aerospace has delivered the 15th MRH90 (Multi-Role Helicopter) to the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
It was the second such handover in two weeks following signing of an agreement to overcome programme issues - Australian Aerospace’s production facility on Brisbane Airport is assembling and delivering 46 MRH90s to replace Army and Navy Black Hawk and Sea King helicopters.
Since the helicopter’s entry to service, Australian Aerospace, its industry partners and the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) have been working to introduce the new type into service. On 23 November, Australian Aerospace and the Commonwealth of Australia signed a Deed of Agreement, encompassing a remediation plan to overcome a number of identified issues, including an engine failure and oil cooler fan issues, and ensure timely deliveries of the MRH90s.
