Firefly S.p.A of Chile Takes Delivery of an AW119Ke Helicopter


AgustaWestland, March 07, 2011 - AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica Company, is pleased to announce that Firefly S.p.A of Chile has taken delivery of an AW119Ke single engine helicopter. The aircraft will be used to perform corporate transport missions. The delivery marks the entrance of the AW119Ke into the Chilean helicopter market. AgustaWestland has previously sold and delivered to the Carabineros de Chile four law enforcement-configured AW109 Power light twin helicopters. The company has also sold a Grand light twin to a private customer in 2010 for corporate transport purposes.

The Chilean commercial helicopter market is offering great opportunities, particularly for corporate transport, aerial filming and tourism. The AW119Ke and the Grand models have been chosen thanks to their outstanding levels of performance, reliability, safety, cabin space and cost effectiveness in their respective classes. Disaster relief and fire fighting-configured AW119Kes have been successfully used to support local community following the earthquake in 2010 confirming type’s operational effectiveness and capability.

The AW119Ke is AgustaWestland’s answer to worldwide demand for a high performance, modern, multi-role single-engine helicopter and it has achieved great success in many markets for VIP/corporate transport, EMS, offshore transport, utility and fire fighting applications. Around 190 helicopters have been ordered by over 90 customers in approximately 30 countries so far.
