Brazilian State of Goiás Orders Three AW119Ke Helicopters


AgustaWestland, November 02, 2010 - AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica Company, is pleased to announce that the State of Goiás, in central Brazil, has ordered three AW119Ke single engine helicopters for law enforcement, fire-fighting and transport missions. The contract is worth 11 million dollar and also includes training for both aircrew and maintainers, with all three aircraft scheduled for delivery in December 2010. Synergy Aerospace, a division of Synergy Group, signed a multi-year contract and distribution agreement in July 2006 for AgustaWestland commercial helicopters in Brazil and this sale by Synergy marks the entry of the AW119 into the Brazilian law enforcement market.

The aircraft will be based in Goiânia, the state capital, and will be equipped with rappelling gear, wire strike protection system, a cargo hook, search light and Bambi fire fighting bucket. AgustaWestland’s Brazilian subsidiary, AgustaWestland Do Brasil Ltda, will provide support for the helicopters from its new facility in San Paulo. The new facility, located approximately 30 km west of the city centre, provides a complete range of support services including maintenance, logistics, spares, repair and overhaul and customization for the AW119, all variants of the AW109, Grand, GrandNew and AW139.

The 8-seat AW119Ke is the top-of-the-range helicopter in the single engine market and has excellent performance even in extremely hot and high operating environments. The helicopter, with a MGW of 3,150 kg (6,945 lb) with external loads, is a highly effective utility helicopter and is proving its abilities in the law enforcement and fire-fighting roles in many countries. Over 190 AW119 helicopters have been ordered to date in nearly 30 countries by almost 90 customers. The AW119Ke is ideally suited to perform a wide range of tasks including utility, fire-fighting, EMS, VIP/corporate transport, offshore transport, law enforcement and military duties. Orders for over 130 AgustaWestland helicopters of various types have been placed by customers in Brazil so far for a wide range of roles including VIP/corporate transport, offshore transport, EMS and law enforcement.
