The PZL Kania is a Polish twin-engine aircraft that was used as a military trainer and attack helicopter. The first flight of this plane was in November 1986, but it wasn’t until 1989 that it entered production. It never became a popular helicopter due to the lack of interest from western countries in the model. Only 19 were ever built, including the prototypes.
