Colombia to expand S-70i fleet with new order

Colombia’s army is to expand its fleet of five Sikorsky S-70i Black Hawk utility helicopters, with a further two of the Polish-built aircraft to be delivered late this year.

A first batch of five S-70is arrived at Tolemaida air base in Colombia on 30 January, at the end of delivery flights performed from Sikorsky’s Hartford site in Connecticut. The aircraft had been equipped with customer-specific equipment at the US location, after being built in Mielec, Poland.




“The [new] aircraft are expected to be delivered by October 2013,” Sikorsky says.
