AgustaWestland and Russian Helicopters signed the preliminary agreement to launch the production of AW139 helicopters in Russia at the Farnborough International Airshow in 2008. A shareholder agreement was subsequently signed in June 2010 paving the way to start building a new plant from scratch in Tomilino in the Moscow region. In the summer of 2011 the final agreements on CJSC HeliVert joint venture establishment were signed and early during 2012 specialists from HeliVert studied in Italy at AgustaWestland training centre.
