Poland’s Minister of National Defense Mariusz Błaszczak visited the Boeing’s AH-64 Apache production site in the Arizona on 25th September 2023. Last month, U.S. government approved the sale of 96 Apache helicopters for the Polish military.
“We are working closely with both governments to finalize this sale and look forward to delivering the first Apache to Poland,” said Heidi Grant, president of Business Development for Boeing Defense, Space and Security. “Poland will become the second largest Apache operator in the world, after the U.S. Army.”
“Our team is honored to host Minister Błaszczak and grateful for the trust Poland has placed in the AH-64 Apache to address their national security needs,” said Kathleen Jolivette, vice president and general manager, Vertical Lift, Boeing. “This is a positive step toward Poland becoming the newest customer to operate the Apache.”
Boeing press released said, “the minister met with Boeing leaders and toured the AH-64 Apache production line in celebration of Poland’s recent Apache selection.”
