On September 29th, 2016, Dominic Perry wrote an article for Flight Global talking about how Kenya is going to take delivery on five remanufactured Bell Helicopter Huey II rotorcrafts. These Huey II rotorcrafts have a worth of over $50 million. This was a contracted that was awarded to Kenya on September 26th. There are also various spare parts and training that is bundled up into this deal.
In terms of the remanufacturing, Bell will be reusing fuselages but also added new tail and main rotors. In addition to this Bell will be adding new modified engines and gearboxes.
Kenya plans to take delivery in late 2017 in December. This was confirmed by the US Department of Defense in a contract notification.
In addition to these five Huey II rotorcrafts, Bell says that there are another 15 of these rotorcrafts that are actively being negotiated.
