THE FIRST OF 11 POLISH-BUILT W-3A SOKOL helicopters are to be delivered to the Czech air force's 6th Aviation Unit this month. The first batch will consist of three transport helicopters and will be followed by four more by the end of November. Four W-3As equipped for search-and-rescue duties will follow, with deliveries to be completed in 1997. The helicopters were exchanged for ten ex-Czech Air Force MiG-29s.
