Agusta Helicopters For Sale
Leonardo’s Helicopter Division performs research, design, development, production, customer support and marketing of the company’s extensive range of modern helicopters for commercial, public service, and security and defence applications. Current production covers all the main helicopter weight categories, from the 1.8 tonne single-engine to the 16 tonne three-engine. Moreover, all the helicopters are dual commercial and military use platforms except some specific military platforms (NH90, Super Lynx 300, AW159 and AW101).
The Division is able to manage the entire helicopter development and production cycle because the plants, concentrated in Italy, the United Kingdom, Poland and the United States, are fully integrated and are organised around ‘centres of exellence’ that support the final assembly lines. The final assembly lines are located in Vergiate and Tessera(Italy), in Yeovil (United Kingdom), in Świdnik (Poland) and in Philadelphia (United States).
The Helicopter Division also includes the operations of Polish subsidiary PZL-Świdnik, acquired in 2010. Furthermore, from 1 January 2016, the Helicopter Division has absorbed the activities of AgustaWestland. The AW139, AW169 and AW189 models are part of a family of new generation helicopters, all featuring the same design philosophy and the same certification and safety standards. The family’s models also share many component parts and the same approach to maintenance and training. As a result, this translates into significant advantages in terms of operational efficiency and a reduction in through life costs for the users.
AW109 Power delivers outstanding multi-role flexibility for government and commercial operators, who will benefit from high cruise speed and excellent performance, with competitive acquisition and direct operating costs. The platform is mission-capable day or night, for single or dual pilot IFR operations and compliant with JAR OPS 3 requirements for Category A operations, even at Max Take-Off Weight (MTOW) with FADEC-controlled twin-turbine engines and redundancy in all critical systems ensure safety of operation in the most demanding circumstances.
