    Leonardo AW609 tiltrotor prototype #4, AC4, was transferred from Philadelphia to Cascina Costa, Italy last March 2 for the final stage of testing ahead of civil certification


    AW609 Last Prototype Moves to Italy

    Leonardo, April 18, 2021 - The AW609 AC4, fully representative of the final production configuration, was recently welcomed at our Cascina Costa site where it will support the final stage of programme testing ahead of civil certification and will bring it to the next market-oriented stage.

    The AC4 transfer to Italy allows Leonardo to maintain production representative aircraft both in the U.S. and Italy as the first prototype – AC1, is now solely used for ground-based and load testing.

    The AC4 will also allow customer-dedicated demonstration activities for European operators mirroring similar activities to be carried out by aircraft in the U.S. for customers in the Americas and other geographies.

    The industrialization, customer service and training service of the AW609 program intensifies in Philadelphia through the new training academy and new final assembly hangar.
