First Denel Agusta A109 LUH Unveiled


AgustaWestland, September 22, 2004 - Agusta, an AgustaWestland company, is pleased to announce that in a ceremony today at Africa Aerospace and Defence 2004 exhibition the first Denel Aviation assembled A109 LUH was shown publicly for the first time.

The helicopter, with South African Air Force tail number 4006, successfully completed a series of acceptance test flights at Denel's Kempton Park facilities earlier this month, before being flown to the exhibition.

It is the first one of the 25 A109 LUHs Denel would be manufacturing for the South African Air Force. Denel's production of these helicopters is scheduled to run over the next three years. Once in service, the A109 LUHs will initially be based at Bloemfontein to be used in various roles, including humanitarian operations and disaster relief. The A109 LUH is the best selling light-twin multirole helicopter for military requirements and it has been already sold to South Africa, Sweden and Malaysia.
