Description: The AgustaWestland AW169 is a new generation multi-purpose twin engine light transport utility helicopter in the 4.5-ton class. It has been designed to meet the demands of the commercial and government operators for EMS/SAR, law enforcement, passenger and offshore transport and utility markets. Incorporating an advanced aerodynamic rotor design for enhanced performance, the aircraft will deliver the highest levels of safety. The AW169 eco-friendly design also benefits from extensive use of composites, advanced airframe aerodynamics, next generation navigation avionics and state-of-the-art systems. Besides, the aircraft can be customized with weather radar, FLIR, rescue hoist, cargo hook, search light and medical interior. AgustaWestland launched the state-of-the-art AW169 aircraft at the Farnborough air show on July 19, 2010. The company forecast is to produce almost 1,000 helicopters over the next 20 years.

The AW169's avionics suite provides maximum situational awareness and all-weather operations, including a full digital NVG compatible cockpit with three 8x10 inches large area displays (AMLCD) with enhanced graphics capability. A 4-axis digital automatic flight control system (DAFCS) with dual Flight Management System (FMS) minimizes crew workload allowing single/dual pilot VFR/IFR operations. The avionics suite also complies with satellite-based navigation, communication and surveillance requirements and has the capability to perform satellite-based IFR LPV (localizer performance with vertical guidance) approaches to maximize round-the-clock utilization of the helicopter. Terrain Awareness Warning Systems, airborne collision avoidance systems and the innovative Guardian obstacle detection device can be added to the standard avionic configuration.

The AW169 will be powered by two advanced FADEC-controlled Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210 turboshaft engines featuring high power with maximum efficiency and low emissions. It will be able to carry two pilots and up to 8/10 passengers, or alternatively two stretchers, in the large unobstructed main cabin accessible via two large sliding cabin doors. The AW169 has been developed in accordance with the FAA/EASA Part 29 certification standards and complies with full crashworthy structure and seats, engine burst containment and one engine inoperative (OEI) capability in the entire envelope. It AW169 has been engineered with maximum maintainability with high TBOs (Time Between Overhaul) for the power plant and main components, a reduced number of life-limited parts, high reliability and low maintenance requirements to maximize operational effectiveness.
