AgustaWestland unit PZL Swidnik has delivered four W-3A Sokol utility helicopters to the Philippine air force.

Representing the first batch from an order signed in 2010, the Sokols were transported using a charted Antonov An-124 transport, said PZL Swidnik.

"The delivery flight marks the completion of the first part of the contract, which includes eight aircraft plus training and support," the company said.

The six-tonne Sokol can carry two pilots and 12 passengers.
