AgustaWestland family makes Heli-Expo debut

AgustaWestland will display its complete helicopter family – consisting of the AW169, AW139 and AW189 – for the first time in North America at the HAI Heli Expo 2014, being held in Anaheim from 25-27 February.

Daniele Romiti, CEO of AgustaWestland, said: “I invite everyone visiting Heli-Expo to come and see our family of new generation helicopters, a range of helicopters covering the four to eight tonne weight categories that is unmatched in performance, capability and technology. The market success of the AW139 and the initial market response to the AW169 and AW189 has been outstanding, confirming our belief in the Family concept and the market leading capabilities of these helicopters.”

Romiti added: “We will also be demonstrating some of the new training systems and customer support services that are now available to keep our customers’ aircraft flying and helping to further improve safety. I hope that you can take time to be briefed on these advances and the advantages they can deliver to your business.”

AgustaWestland will be performing pre-arranged customer flights with the AW609 TiltRotor and with the AW189 helicopter at the show.
