Airbus Helicopters and its partner Heli Invest Services welcome the decision of the Polish Ministry of Defence to pre-select the H225M Caracal from Airbus Helicopters.
We are fully committed to providing Poland with the best product and support for this long-term strategic program. We believe our offer will deeply strengthen the defence capabilities of Poland by creating the most value operationally, industrially and technologically.
We are now preparing ourselves for the next steps of the tender process, cooperating during this test period to answer all requests and questions from the Polish armed forces, and further demonstrate that the Caracal matches all criteria of the tender and their operational needs.
