Italy and Israel inked an agreement on an additional order for five AgustaWestland AW119Kx Koala training helicopters. This deal confirms that Israel ordered the new helicopter as a replacement for the Bell 206 helicopters that were in use with the Heyl Ha’Avir (Israeli Air Force) Flight School at Hatzerim AB since the 1970s.
The total number of Koala helicopters ordered is twelve. The first order for seven AW119Kx helicopters was already placed in February 2019
