Philippine Air Force (PAF) Looking Forward to Delivery of 10 Black Hawks

 National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has said that he is looking forward to this year’s delivery of remaining 10 S70i Black Hawk Combat Utility Helicopters built by Poland-based company PZL Mielec.

In December 2020, the Philippine Air Force (PAF) accepted the delivery of 6 S70i Black Hawks as part of the 16 units ordered from PZL Mielec.“Since their acquisition, our Blackhawk S-70is have greatly boosted the operational readiness of the PAF in both combat and non-combat missions. Their larger capacity and impressive horsepower allows for a faster and long-range transport,” Secretary Lorenzana said.

“Looking forward to the delivery of the remaining 10 Blackhawks this year,” he added.
