H-60A/L and CH-47F: Software Updated for EAWIS?

This article initially appeared in PS 796 (Mar 19), p. 26.


If your Chinook or Black Hawk aircraft has the encrypted airborne wireless intercommunication system (EAWIS), you may need a software update.

Inspect your aircraft now and record the software being used on the handheld enhanced mobile equipment (EME) and the integrated aircraft interface unit (IAIU) located on the main EAWIS hub in the cabin overhead. Submit that information to PM Air Warrior (PM-AW) to make sure the systems have the latest software.
