Kenyan Air-Force to receive five Bell UH-1H «Huey II» helicopters

US Army will finance procurement by  Kenyan Air-Force with five Bell UH-1H helicopters  refurbished to Huey II standard.

According to a notice posted on the US Federal Business Opportunities website on 16 March, the Program Management Office, Non-Standard Rotary Wing Aircraft, is conducting “market research” “to identify parties having an interest in and the resources to support the procurement and delivery of five (5) baseline Bell UH-1H II (Huey II) Helicopters, aircraft spare parts, special tools, operator and maintainer training to a Foreign Military Sales customer for the Republic of Kenya.”

The notice makes it clear that at the moment there is no solicitation, and the request for capability information does not constitute a request for proposals. “Submission of any information in response to this market survey is purely voluntary; the government assumes no financial responsibility for any costs incurred.”
