GrandNew in Chile
AgustaWestland has announced that a GrandNew
helicopter has been purchased by Naviera Mistral SA based in Santiago del Chile.
The helicopter will be used to perform VIP/corporate transport missions. The aircraft is
scheduled to be delivered to its customer later this year.
This order marks the addition of a GrandNew to the previously delivered
Grand aircraft operated by a private customer in Chile and expands the presence of
AgustaWestland light helicopters with one AW119Ke for VIP transport and four
AW109 Powers already in service with the Carabineros de Chile plus one recently
ordered to perform law enforcement missions.
The new customer will also benefit from an
AgustaWestland authorised service centre which is being established by the
independent sales representative AVIASUR to provide maintenance and other
support services from its modern facility at Santiago’s
