Bell Helicopter, PGZ sign LoI

16th December 2016 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Bell Helicopter and Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ) have signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) based on Poland’s Kruk helicopter programme.

The government of Poland is seeking new attack helicopters for its armed forces, and Bell is offering the AH-1Z Viper for the programme.

The LoI with PGZ covers cooperation in identifying specific industrial resources required in the support of the programme should the AH-1Z be selected.

Bell Helicopter has been working to strengthen its ties with the Polish defence industry throughout 2016, seeking in-country capabilities in the areas of production, technical support, logistics and supply chain for Team Viper.

Robert T Hastings, executive vice president at Bell Helicopter, said: ‘We believe this step with PGZ allows us to build on this relationship and increase cooperation in the future.

‘We consider this a path to further define available technological solutions in support of our effort to introduce the Bell AH-1Z Viper attack helicopter in Poland for the Polish armed forces Kruk programme. We are also looking forward to exploring new opportunities related to Poland’s utility helicopter programme. Bell Helicopter values our relationship with PGZ, and we consider our continued work with the Polish defence industry as a top priority.’
