The Boeing [NYSE:BA] AH-64 Apache attack helicopter will be making its first appearance at the largest defense show in Poland – the MSPO International Defence Industry Exhibition – in Kielce, September 1-4.
The AH-64 Apache is currently under consideration for the Polish Kruk Attack Helicopter Program. It is the most advanced multirole combat helicopter and the only available aircraft equipped with fire control radar and electro-optical sensors for both pilots. Boeing has delivered more than 2,100 AH-64 Apaches to customers around the world including more than 180 of the AH-64E Apache, the most advanced model in the Apache family.
“The Apache’s capability surpasses the performance levels of any military combat helicopter in service or on the drawing board,” said Jeff Kohler, vice president, International Business Development, Defense, Space & Security. ”Displaying an Apache at MSPO will enable Polish military, industry partners and media to see firsthand what Boeing can deliver to meet Poland’s needs.”
Boeing will also showcase the Apache Multirole Trainer, an affordable, realistic and networkable system for Apache aviators and crew. Visitors attending MSPO are welcome to experience this versatile training solution for Apache customers. It allows students to train on cockpit procedures, maintenance operational checks, weapons systems and communications.
Polish military and civilian leaders attending MSPO will also have the opportunity to learn more about Boeing programs such as the P-8A Poseidon and Maritime Surveillance Aircraft; the CH-47 Chinook medium-lift tandem rotor helicopter; the AH-6i light attack/reconnaissance helicopter; and ScanEagle unmanned aerial system.
