Kosovo looks to acquire helicopters

20 April 2017

The office of Kosovo's prime minister, Isa Mustafa, decided on 18 April that the republic will initiate a process to procure a number of helicopters, with an inter-ministerial team deciding that, although the aerial capabilities of the republic are currently non-existent, there is a "real need [for them] for dealing with emergencies and other situations within the country".

Jane's believes the focus of the programme will be on procuring between four and six light- to medium-sized rotorcraft equipped for executing civilian-oriented missions including law enforcement, search and rescue, medical evacuation, firefighting, and personnel/cargo transport.
