Description: The AgustaWestland AW189 is a twin-engine, 8-ton class multi-purpose helicopter designed in response to the growing market demand for higher payload, longer range and higher productivity. The aircraft is well suited for offshore transport, search and rescue, passenger transport and a variety of commercial missions. The AW189 is powered by two General Electric CT7-2E1 engines equipped with FADEC and built-in particle separators. Each engine is rated at 1,625-shp of power at takeoff. Its advanced avionics are intended to minimize pilot workload and single pilot IFR certification is also underway for the AW189 helicopter. AgustaWestland unveiled the AW189 at the Paris Air Show in June 2011. Aircraft certification was carried out in 2013 and first customer, Weststar, took delivery of the AW189 helicopter at the Farnborough International Airshow on July 16, 2014.

The Leonardo Helicopters AW189K is a further variant of the AW189 helicopter powered by two Safran Helicopter Engines Aneto-1K turboshafts. The new engines will increase and expand the flight performance of the AW189 aircraft. This variant is the first rotary-wing aircraft powered by the Aneto turboshaft family. The AW189K aircraft was launched in October 2017 and is scheduled to get the type certification in the fourth quarter of 2018 entering service thereafter or in 2019.
