Leonardo celebrates first ten years of the AW169 in the skies with it redefining the light-intermediate market with best performance, advance capabilities, and latest technology

Posted by Admin

A decade ago the first prototype of the AW169 light intermediate twin engine helicopter took to the skies for the first time at the company’s site in Cascina Costa di Samarate (Varese, Italy) piloted by Giuseppe Lo Coco and Giuseppe Afruni with the Flight Test Engineers Massimo Longo and Stefano Rognoni on board. The 10 May 2012 marked the start of a new era for the Company. The aircraft enabled expansion of the company’s modern product range by entering a new market segment. The AW169 was the first all-new product in the light-intermediate category in nearly 30 years and met the latest and most stringent operational and safety standards.
