Under the contract, Boeing will conduct on the fuselage and all subsystems as well as digital avionics and flight-control systems for the aircraft. Bell will be responsible for the wing, transmissions, rotor systems and engine installation.

Work will be carried out in Pennsylvania and New York and is expected to be completed by March 2012.
