AgustaWestland has sold an AW169 to Canadian customer Fig Air Inc., a Toronto-based VIP and corporate charter service. Fig Air Inc., a current operator of the AW109 Grand, is upgrading to the AW169 in order to better serve their Toronto – New York City charter customers with the most modern, state-of-the-art twin-turbine helicopter available to the market.

This contract, combined with a series of other recent corporate sales, further expand the leading role played by AgustaWestland in the executive/corporate helicopter market through its comprehensive range of dedicated products, covering the light twin to intermediate twin categories.

The AW169 is expected to soon enter into service and incorporates several new technology features in the rotor system, engines, avionics, transmission and electric power generation and distribution systems, and is the first all new helicopter in its class in more than 30 years. The AW169 can comfortably accommodate up to ten passengers in its large, unobstructed cabin.

The AW169, along with the AW139 and AW189, make up AgustaWestland’s family of new generation helicopters. These helicopters all possess the same high-performance flight characteristics and safety features while sharing the same common cockpit concept and design philosophy. This approach facilitates synergies for operators of these models in areas such as training, maintenance and support.(Aero-News Network)
