Mesa, Arizona – Boeing has received a contract to remanufacture 117 AH-64D Apache attack helicopters to the new, more capable AH-64E model.

The agreement modifies an existing contact among Boeing and the Army for the full-rate production of lot 5 and lot 6 Apache helicopters. The Army will return 117 AH-64D Apaches to Boeing’s Mesa, Arizona, production center to be remanufactured into the AH-64E configuration. The Army followed a similar example when the AH-64A Apaches were remanufactured into AH-64Ds.
