AB139 Achieves FAA Certification


AgustaWestland, December 20, 2004 - AgustaWestland is pleased to announce that the AB139 was today awarded FAA Certification which follows the initial ENAC (Italian Airworthiness) IFR certification with a three screen digital cockpit. To enhance overall cockpit management, a four-screen cockpit has been introduced and the AB139 has now been awarded full IFR certification by ENAC/EASA, and the FAA to cover day and night IFR. The four-screen Honeywell Primus Epicã Electronic Flight Instrumentation System provides decreased pilot workload and enhances the overall capabilities of the AB139.

The AB139 is a JAR/FAR 29 certified aircraft with benchmark performance and a superior cockpit. Certification flying demonstrated that the AB139 has lower operating costs and higher productivity than any competitive aircraft in its 5 to 8 tonne class. These productivity advantages are all achieved while providing Category "A" (Class 1) performance without payload loss at maximum take-off weight. Currently, final assembly of the AB139 is in Italy at Agusta's Vergiate plant, near Milan. However, a U.S. assembly facility in Texas will commence in 2005, with the completion and delivery of the first U.S. aircraft in first quarter 2006.

Customer Service Centers (CSC) will be strategically located throughout the world to provide spare parts, tools and maintenance services.

Customers will be supported with the most effective training programs available using computer based training, flight simulators and maintenance training devices. Currently, the AB139 has an order book of over 80 aircraft slated for more than 40 customers world-wide. In addition AB139 is the ICGS selected VRS helicopter for the USCG Deepwater program.
