    AgustaWestland, June 16, 2005 - The first of eleven AgustaWestland A109 LOH helicopters ordered by the Malaysian Ministry of Defence performed a successful first flight on 14th June at AgustaWestland's Vergiate plant in Italy.

    The A109 LOH, a version of the well known A109 LUH, was selected in October 2003 as the most cost effective and capable machine after a rigorous competition and evaluation process run by the Malaysian Ministry of Defence. The main roles and missions of the LOH are observation, reconnaissance, tactical transport and area suppression.

    The selection of the A109 helicopter by Malaysian Army Aviation followed the aircraft's success in South Africa and Sweden. A total of 61 A109LUHs have now been ordered, making it the most successful helicopter in its class in the military market.

    The A109 LUH is powered by two 711 shp Turbomeca Arrius 2K2 giving it excellent hot and high performance. With a maximum speed of 168 knots and a payload of up to 1.5 tons the A109 LUH is a fast, versatile and capable light twin-engine military helicopter.
