Description

Based on the battle proven BLACK HAWK helicopter, the S-70i helicopter has been designed with the specific features and capabilities most requested by international military customers, at an affordable price. The S-70i BLACK HAWK helicopter is the culmination of 30 years of engineering excellence and real world military experience. This affordable new breed of BLACK HAWK is robustly configured with a state-of-the-art cockpit. Designed to a strict military standard, the BLACK HAWK helicopter's ability to be quickly deployed and reconfigured has made this versatile aircraft a legend. The S-70i BLACK HAWK helicopter is the latest addition to this proud lineage of multi-mission aircraft that continues to serve 27 nations around the world. The Polish Company PZL Mielec delivered the first three S-70i Black Hawk helicopters to an undisclosed launch customer in August 2011. Sikorsky Aircraft signed a contract with the Brunei Ministry of Defence in December 2011, to supply 12 S-70i helicopters for the Royal Brunei Air Force (RBAF). In March 2013, The Colombian Army has formally inducted five new Sikorsky S-70i multi-mission helicopters into its fleet of BLACK HAWK aircraft. Colombia is the first South American country to buy the S-70i BLACK HAWK helicopter variant from Sikorsky Aircraft, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corporation.
