Leonardo at Helitech
Leonardo is pleased to announce its participation at Helitech 2017, the most important European helicopter exhibition for the civil market, taking place in London from 3 to 5 October 2017. Leonardo’s stand features the new generation AW169 helicopter configured for air ambulance operations that recently entered into service in the UK and is operated by Specialist Aviation. The stand includes a corner dedicated to Customer Support & Training that illustrates the most recent training systems and customer support equipment that are part of Leonardo Helicopters’ wide offer in this sector. These include an AW169 Virtual Interactive Procedural Trainer (VIPT), the Skyflight mission planning app and Heliwise HUMS analysis services.
Helitech 2017 is also an occasion for promoting the helicopters that together with the AW169, make up the AW Family (the AW139 and the AW189), and the wide range of missions that, thanks to their versatility, they are able to complete.
The AW189 is designed for long range, all-weather SAR and MEDEVAC missions even in icing conditions, with advanced avionics and rapid start up.
The AW169 EMS (Emergency Medical Services) is rapidly reconfigurable and uniquely designed around patient needs, ensuring that air medical professionals can be there when it counts, providing the best care.
