AgustaWestland and Italian Air Force Sign Letter of Intent for Training



AgustaWestland and Italian Air Force Sign Letter of Intent for Training


AgustaWestland, March 19, 2014 - AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, and the Italian Air Force are pleased to announce the signing of a Letter of Intent aimed at further strengthening their already well-established cooperation through the future set up of joint training solutions.

The announcement was made on the occasion of the official ceremony for the maiden flight of the first HH-101A CAESAR helicopter for the Italian Air Force held at Yeovil plant, UK, today.

The partners intend to co-develop new capabilities to meet the future rotary-wing training requirements by leveraging synergies between the AgustaWestland Training Organization based at its Frosinone plant, close to Rome, and the Italian Air Force 72nd Wing (72° Stormo).

Through this mutually beneficial cooperation, AgustaWestland will further expand the level of service in the training sector to meet the evolving requirements of the customer, while the Italian Air Force will enhance the level of training for its personnel through an innovative, efficient strategy.

The partners envisage the development of an integrated training solution based on the state-of-the-art AW139 light intermediate helicopter model, by which conversion training will be ensured to crews of both the Italian Air Force’s HH-139A/VH139, used for search and rescue and government transport duties respectively, and the HH-101A which will primarily be used for personnel recovery and special forces operations.

Through the training academies in Italy, UK, USA and Malaysia, AgustaWestland enjoys an enviable track record in successfully training both military and commercial pilots and maintainers from all over the world. Training programmes are tailored to meet a customer's individual needs and operational requirements using established analytical processes. Training solutions and services are designed, developed and delivered through the entire lifecycle of the product to meet the demands of long-term operational support. Extensive use is made of multi-media tools and an expanding range of synthetic training devices ranging from e-learning, part-task maintenance and procedures trainers through to full mission and flight simulators.
