Sospensione, si spera temporanea, degli acquisti ...

The Air Force did not request to buy any new MH-139A Grey Wolf helicopters in its fiscal 2022 budget and fielding will be delayed as the service waits to receive Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification.
The Air Force bought eight of the new helicopters in 2021, and previous budget documents called for the purchase of eight more in 2022, before the certification delay.
“The FAA requires the MH-139A to obtain an updated certification, because it is a commercial derivative aircraft with military unique equipment that requires certification,” the service said in a statement.

Ragazzi vi posso confermare che la scorsa settimana (se non sbaglio,perchè ero in ferie) Agusta Westland ha piazzato 20 elicotteri (tra 139,119,169 e 189) nel mercato cinesi tutto destinati al traspor

Infatti .... "AgustaWestland signs Distributor Agreement for Civil Helicopters in China and signs for 20 Helicopters" .... http://www.agustawestland.com/news/agustawestland-signs-distributor-agreement

Certo che non è proprio cominciata nel migliore dei modi, mannaggia: un guasto idiota...     Cosa dire in questi casi? Che si rompe ma si ripara facilmente...     Però ci si tiene a precisare

Frottole !  La storia si ripete .  

Bush ( repubblicano )  aveva acquistato il VH - 71  e Obama ( democratico ) lo ha rigettato.

Trump ( repubblicano ) aveva acquistato il MH-139 e Biden ( democratico ) lo rigetterà.

I presidenti democratici sono abituati a fare comunella con la troika franco - tedesca .

MH-139A Grey Wolf ... i ritardi nella certificazione non sono dovuti a problemi tecnici ...

Quote

Air Force Global Strike Command boss Gen. Timothy M. Ray said the Air Force did not include any new MH-139A Grey Wolf helicopters in its fiscal 2022 budget request because of certification delays related to the pandemic.
Ray said the issue with the helicopter, which the command will use to support and provide security for its missile fields, is more “a matter of paperwork” due to delays in Europe stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic than any technical issues with the aircraft.
“I spent some time talking to Boeing about this three weeks ago,” Ray said during a June 3 virtual event hosted by AFA’s Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies. 
“I would characterize these problems as administrative certifications, not terribly technical in nature. [It’s] not very complicated technology.”
