Philippines welcomes final five Black Hawks
PZL Mielec has delivered the final batch of Poland-made S-70i Black Hawk helicopters to the Philippines.
Five S-70i helicopters landed in-country on 9 November, the government-run Philippine News Agency (PNA) reported.
It cited Philippine Air Force spokesman Col Maynard Mariano as saying that technical inspections of these aircraft are underway before they are commissioned into service.
The PAF ordered 16 S-70i helicopters from PZL Mielec for $241 million (PHP11.5 billion) in April 2019.
One helicopter from the initial six crashed later that month while on a night-flying exercise.
‘These helicopters will boost the Armed Forces of the Philippines' capability to conduct various operations, including humanitarian assistance and disaster response missions,’ according to the PNA.
