Thailand Orders 8 Boeing AH-6 Helicopters

MESA, 23 February 2022 | American aircraft manufacturer, Boeing has been awarded a USD 103.7 million contract by the U.S. Department of Defense as part of a foreign military sale for eight AH-6 light attack reconnaissance helicopters to Thailand. The contract also includes spares, training devices, support equipment, and technical publications for the Royal Thai Army.

Thailand is Boeing's second international customer for the aircraft. Boeing has a long and proven track record of being a trusted partner to Thailand's aviation and defense customers for more than 60 years.

These new aircraft will help replace Thailand’s aging helicopter fleet. Deliveries are slated for 2024 from Mesa, Arizona.

Jessie Farrington, business development director of Attack Helicopter Programs, said:

We welcome Thailand's selection of Boeing's AH-6 light attack reconnaissance helicopter and look forward to working with the U.S. and Thai governments as part of the foreign military sale process. From its unmatched power-to-weight ratio to its extensive, integrated digital communications suite, the AH-6 offers superior performance, capability and versatility and will be a force-multiplier for the Royal Thai Army.
