Israeli firm eyes to offer PHL refurbished Black Hawks

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), which participated in the recently concluded Asian Defence, Security and Crisis Management Exhibition and Conference – ADAS 2018, is eyeing to offer refurbished
Black Hawks to the Philippine Air Force.

“IAI came up with an innovative approach – acquisition of modernised pre-owned Black Hawks. This approach will enable the air force to operate the most modernised upgraded platform at a much lower cost,” Eli Alfassi, VP of marketing at IAI, told ADAS Daily News.

“We are glad to report that IAI has been very active and successful in the Philippines in past years. During this time, we leveraged our relationship to promote cooperation with local industry and customers,” Alfassi added.

“In view of the stronger relationship between the two countries and the recent visit of President Duterte, we are confident that both countries can go a long way in reinforcing our collaboration and reap mutual benefits,” he added.
