The Bell helicopters were built by Bell Helicopter Textron Canada, a unit of Textron Inc., while the AW-109Es were made by Anglo-Italian manufacturer Agusta Westland.

Canaya said the Canadian firm had completed delivery of the eight Bell helicopters, while the two AW-109E helicopters were the first of eight to be delivered before the end of the year.
The Bell helicopters will be used in heli-lift operations and in humanitarian assistance and disaster response.

They will complement the PAF’s Hueys, with the Bell helicopters to be assigned to the 205th Tactical Helicopter Wing.
