H225M Caracal passes Polish helicopter trials, Contract To Be Signed Soon
The announcement paves the way for the signing of a contract for 50 helicopters, following the preselection of the Caracal (formerly known as the EC725) for the Polish medium-lift utility helicopter programme on 21 April.
Poland will now begin final negotiations with Airbus for the helicopters.
Deliveries of the Caracal are scheduled to begin in 2017, with the type set to replace Poland's Mil Mi-8/17 utility helicopters and Mi-14 ASW helicopters.
