Signal: Fourth-quarter deliveries release shows mixed picture for Boeing in 2023

Boeing has released Q4 2023 delivery details on the defense, space and security programs on 9 January.

While the figures are not considered final until quarterly financial results are released, a comparison between 2023 and 2022 delivery details shows 162 platforms delivered in the last 12 months, up from 167 in 2022.

There were increases in the delivery of remanufactured AH-64 Apache helicopters, rising to 57 aircraft from 50 the previous year, but this increase was met by an almost equally sharp decline in the delivery of new AH-64 Apache helicopters, down from 25 aircraft in 2022 to 20 new units in 2023. Overall there is an increase in the delivery of multi-role attack helicopters by 2 units, but the data shows a shift from the delivery of new rotary-wing aircraft to remanufactured ones.

This is also a trend consistent with reported traditions of the Chinooks. In 2022, Boing delivered 19 new CH-47 Chinook helicopters, but only nine in 2023, a drop of more than 50 percent. However, delivery of refurbished CH-47 Chinook helicopters did not offset the loss and instead remained flat, with nine deliveries in both 2022 and 2023.
