The Polish Air Force is adding its second VIP-configured W-3A Sokol twin-engine transport helicopter to its fleet, part of a 2011 contract for five helicopters signed with PZL-Swidnik, which AgustaWestland purchased in 2010. In its VIP-configuration, the cockpit avionics feature a weather radar system. The remaining aircraft are scheduled for handover by the end of 2013. According to PZL-Swidnik, the helicopter will be used to transport top Polish government and military officials.
