Sikorsky has dispatched an S-70i Black Hawk to the Mexican state of Jalisco. The state becomes the first in the country with the international variant of the Black Hawk. The Ministry of Public Security will use the helicopter for law enforcement, including during the XVI Pan American Games in Guadalajara. Sikorsky’s PZL Mielec facility in Poland is currently training the flight crew. The S-70i becomes the 20th Black Hawk in Mexico—the Mexican Air Force, Navy and Federal Police operate 19 UH-60L and UH-60Ms.
