Poland will offer helicopter’s dynamic displays and plentiful static displays

The Polish Air Force will show off various aircrafts at this year’s anniversary NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days. The tactical air force will be represented by F-16, whereas the helicopters squadron will demonstrate Sw-4 Puszczyk (Tawny Owl) and W-3 Sokół (Falcon) of the Polish origin. Further, the displays will include C-295M and An-28TD transport planes.

The visitors of NATO Days have already had the opportunity to see all above mentioned aircrafts, however the W-3 Falcon was so far presented only in the Czech colours. Therefore the Polish pilot will for the first time ever fly this twin-engine, multi-role helicopter, which can be used for transportation or rescue operations.

“Based on the Falcon helicopter’s premiere, our Polish neighbours still prove that there is a lot to offer from their side, regardless of our mutual cooperation from the very beginning of NATO Days,” highlighted the participation of the Polish Air Force Zbyněk Pavlačík, CEO of Jagello 2000. “Moreover, this year’s Polish presentation is very well connected to the year 2014, when the Poles were Special Partner Nation and presented almost the same quantity of the equipment.”

Dynamic display of the light, single-engine, multi-role helicopter Sw-4 Tawny Owl is in a bit of contrast to the Falcon’s presentation. The Tawny Owl can be seen only in the Polish Air Force and was already presented in Mošnov last year. The visitors may also enjoy the helicopter on the static display, altogether with the transport airplanes An-28TD and C-295M, whose participation was already announced.

Despite the fact that Antonov An-28 firstly took off in 1969, it is still being used both by the Polish Air Force and the Navy. Quite opposite, the twin-engine transport plane C-295 of the Spanish manufacture, which is able to fly with over 70 passengers on board, is almost 30 years newer, therefore it is still being manufactured and can be found worldwide. In both Polish and Czech Air Force, the C-295 replaced the old Soviet An-26.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon will be the last aircraft on the Polish static display. This single-engine, single-seat, multi-role fighter landed at Mošnov airport in the Polish colours two year ago. The American aircraft were originally supposed to replace the Soviet MiG-29s, nevertheless the Polish Air Force still uses both types of these combat planes.
