Thanks to over 60 years of experience in the design and production of aircraft and integrated training systems, Leonardo is now ready to introduce the Aermacchi M-345. A highly performing trainer aircraft designed to be simple, effective and reliable, in addition to featuring extremely low maintenance and support costs, the Aermacchi M-345 is the ideal aircraft to replace the current line of basic trainers around the world.

Utmost flexibility and adaptability to meet specific customer requirements: these are the characteristics that make the AW101 one of the most successful medium/heavy helicopters on the market today.
Gioia del Colle (Bari) Air Base. It is a very quiet morning when the alarm goes off in the Control Room: immediate take-off order, scramble! The two pilots on alert are already wearing their anti-G suits. They rush towards the shelters housing the "pre-flighted" Eurofighters.
Among the wide range of integrated solutions that Leonardo offers for defence and security in the various operating scenarios (air, land, naval, sea and cyber) are those related to remote piloting systems.
Strait of Sicily. The temperature at sea level is high. The ATR 72MP, produced by Leonardo, designated P-72A by the Italian Air Force, belongs to the 41° Stormo – Wing, has taken off a couple of hours earlier from the Sigonella Air Base. On board, one of the four Mission System Operators (MSO) carefully watches over the sea surface with the Seaspray 7300E active electronically scanned radar also produced by Leonardo.
Leonardo's over 30 years of experience in the development of multifunction radar systems began with the creation of the EMPAR naval radar and the need to increase the safety of Armed Forces during demanding operations characterised by emerging threats. These key factors led Leonardo to develop and build the KRONOS radar family: state-of-the-art, multifunctional and multi-mission radars dedicated to land and naval air surveillance and defence.
The M-346FA (Fighter Attack) is an evolution of the Aermacchi M-346 Advanced Jet Trainer (AJT), and retains its advanced trainer and pre-operational features.
Leonardo Helicopters' Mid-Life Upgrade (MLU) team was established to respond to the growing market demand of upgrading in-service fleets, thereby maintaining and improving the global competitiveness of Leonardo helicopter operators, both civil and military, providing targeted solutions to specific operational and mission requirements.
