Just as the UH-1N is being rebuilt and redesigned into the
UH-1Y, the U.S. Marine Corps Attack helicopters AH-1W are being
rebuilt and redesigned into the AH-1Z as well. The traditional
reliability of the Huey series now contributes to the outstanding
performance, state-of-the-art dynamics and avionics of the H1
Production on this contract at LaBarge's Huntsville, AR facility
began in January and is expected to continue through June 2013 for
the box-level assemblies. The company has supported the H-1 Upgrade
Program since 2004.
