Boeing has announced that it is collaborating with the U.S. and Polish governments to finalize the multi-million-dollar sale of 96 AH-64 Apache combat helicopters for Poland’s armed forces.

On Monday, Poland’s Minister of National Defense, Mariusz Błaszczak, and his delegation visited Boeing's Mesa site in Arizona. During the visit, the minister engaged with Boeing leaders and toured the AH-64 Apache production line.

Heidi Grant, the President of Business Development for Boeing Defense, Space, and Security, stated, “We are working closely with both governments to conclude this sale and eagerly anticipate delivering the first Apache to Poland. Poland will become the second-largest Apache operator in the world, after the U.S. Army.”

Poland had previously announced its intention to acquire 96 new Apache attack helicopters, with the U.S. Government granting approval for the $12 billion Foreign Military Sale in August 2023.
