Only one helicopter AW.109 was used in Poland.

The A.109 helicopter in the sanitary version was bought by the Air Ambulance Service in Warsaw. Helicopter A.109 No. 11630 received the registration SP-HXA and got the radio code Rescuer 12. It was in use from July 2, 2005. He was based at the Bemowo-Babice Airport.

On November 20, 2009, this helicopter suffered an accident. The helicopter crew practiced emergency and autorotation landing. The permissible load on the rotor blades was exceeded, and as a result, the blade hit the helicopter's tail beam and its destruction. The crew did not suffer much damage.
