The second five of a batch of 16 brand new Sikorsky S-70i Black Hawk combat utility helicopters have been delivered to the Philippines today (07 June 2021).

The helicopters were flown from Poland by an Antonov An-124 100M (UR-82027) heavy cargo/transport aircraft and unloaded at Clark Air Base in Pampanga (RPLC).

The Polish company Polskie Zaklady Lotnicze now has delivered a total of eleven (11) Sikorsky S-70i Blackhawk helicopters to the Philippines.

The PAF welcomed its first batch of brand new six Sikorsky S-70i Blackhawk helicopters at Clark Air Base, Pampanga (RPLC) on 10 December 2020.

The delivery of the remaining five (5) S70i Blackhawk medium lift helicopters to the Philippines are expected to be completed before the end of September 2021.
