The refined and attractive AgustaWestland AW009 - Charles D'Alberto

Charles D'Alberto 3

The refined and attractive AgustaWestland AW009 is a cost-effective, multi-mission capable, light single-engine helicopter – an evolution of the rugged SW-4.

The mission-proven Rolls-Royce M250-C20R/2 (SP) engine ensures reliable, high performance; an optional M250-C30P engine upgrade will provide enhanced power handling for the most demanding mission.

An advanced ‘Genesys’ avionics display is now standard in every AW009 to ensure excellent situational awareness; pilots experience an intuitive, easy to fly platform with excellent range and endurance – essential for demanding training, law enforcement, passenger transport and utility operations.

The AW009 flying qualities and high inherent safety make it also an optimum helicopter to transport up to 5 people: 1 pilot and up to 4 passengers.
