Heli-Union, November 30, 2016 - Héli-Union is collaborating with Leonardo Malaysia to modify another of Héli-Union AW139 helicopter from 6.800kg to 7000kg.

The 200kg increase allows the aircraft to be in the same level as other large aircraft types.

This is not Heli-Union’s first upgrade of its AW139s. This soon-to-be modified AW139 will join two other Héli-Union AW139s that have been previously configured to 7t.

The modification will be performed jointly by the two companies in Leonardo Malaysia base. Héli-Union sent 3 of their dedicated engineers specialised in B1-Mechanics and B2-Avionics to carry out the assignment in Leonardo Malaysia base. With access to the hangar and tools, the three Héli-Union engineers will be working together with several other engineers of Leonardo Malaysia.

The newly modified AW139 helicopter will be put in action for an offshore personnel transportation mission for one of Héli-Union oil and gas clients in Myanmar.

In 2015, AgustaWestland chose Héli-Union to unveil a 7t version of its AW139 medium twin-engined helicopter. After modification, the helicopter will be able to load 12 passengers with a radius of action of 305km or 426km with 8 passengers. The aircraft itself retains key operating and performance features, including a temperature envelop at sea level -40° to +50° and up to sea state 6 ditching capability.
