The announcement was made at the grand opening of "Casa Agusta" a new modular terminal that combines a helipad, showroom and lounge areas into a single heliport.An AW609 TiltRotor and AW609 corporate cabin mock-up landed at a static display near "Casa Agusta", which is being operated by Falcon Aviation Services. According to Reuters, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is expected to certify the AW609 in 2022, nearly two decades after its first test flight. The twin-engine tilt-rotor aircraft is designed to take off like a helicopter but flies like a plane."With Agusta, we give our VIP operators a strong brand that they can easily recognize and identify with, a sign that embodies their desire for excellence and quality with a personal touch and distinction, which includes their flight experience," said Gian Piero Cutillo, Managing Director of Leonardo's Helicopter Division. "We want them to be themselves before take-off, during flight and upon arrival at their destination, setting them apart from others. The strength and recognition of the Agusta brand legacy still continues to live on in this particular market segment."
