Bell 407GXi in Poland.

At the beginning of 2019, the Polish Police signed a contract for the purchase of three Bell 407GXi helicopters. The contract was signed with the manufacturer of Bell helicopters, Bell Textron Helicopter Inc. based in Fort Worth (USA). Retrofitting the aviation with patrol and observation helicopters made it possible to replace decommissioned, old and worn out PZL Mi-2 and PZL Kania helicopters.

The Bell 407GXi version is the latest modification of the Bell-407 helicopter, which entered production in 2018. Modern avionics and performance predispose these helicopters to be used for tasks requiring long-term stay in the air while ensuring low operating costs.
