EASA has certificated an increased maximum gross weight (MGW) kit for the AgustaWestland AW169.
The MGW will be increased by 200 kg (441 lb), giving a 100 nm range extension.
Existing customers will be able to retrofit the 4.8 tonne increased gross weight kit to enhance their aircraft’s capabilities.
