Description: AgustaWestland's Grand is a light/medium weight twin-engine, multi-mission helicopter developed to meet a wide range of market requirements such as passenger transport, offshore operations, emergency medical services (EMS), Search and Rescue (SAR), law enforcement and coastal patrol. Grand features spacious cabin and payload capacity that previously were only met by larger and more expensive helicopters. Thru Grand, AgustaWestland also intends to complete its product line entering into the segment of light-medium twin commercial helicopters. The Grand is powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW207C engines rated at 815-hp with Full Digital Engine Electronic Control (FADEC). The power plant is coupled with an uprated transmission that ensures outstanding performance in both hovering and forward flights.

The payload, range and cruise speed capabilities are similar to those of larger, more expensive helicopters from previous generations. Its long passenger cabin can be accessed through wide sliding door on both sides. The Grand can be outfitted with various apparels to meet the customers requirements and is able to carry up to seven passengers in addition to the pilot. AgustaWestland unveiled the Grand helicopter at Farnborough Air Show 2004 in the United Kingdom. This commercial aircraft, which is being managed by Agusta Aerospace Corporation, was expected to enter service in 2005. On 15 June 2005, AgustaWestland delivered the first production Grand light-twin helicopter to a British customer during a ceremony at the Paris Air Show 2005 in Le Bourget, France.
