    AgustaWestland New Repair Centres in Europe

    Leonardo, October 16, 2018 - Leonardo is expanding support services for its growing customer base and helicopter fleet across Europe through two new agreements with regional partners, in line with the industrial plan.

    The Company signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Heliwork Services to carry out an AW109 series overhaul. Heliwork Services in Thruxton, Hampshire, UK, is an Authorized Service Centre and Authorized Components Repair Centre for a range of Leonardo’s models and parts including dynamics and main / tail gear boxes (MGB/TGB). Under the new MoU, the existing AW109 series MGB/TGB mid-life inspection capability will be upgraded to full overhaul. The agreement marks the first instance a third party organization is granted overhaul capability on AW109 series MGB/TGB.

    The agreement will serve the large commercial European fleet of multirole AW109s and its variants. The AW109 is a popular light twin noted for its superior performance carrying out a wide range of civil and parapublic missions.

    Leonardo signed an additional MoU with SPECTO Aerospace (formerly Airborne Services) in the Netherlands, appointing SPECTO a Blade Repair Centre for the AW109 and AW139 twin engine helicopters across Europe, including Russia.

    As the most successful helicopter programme in the last 15 years, the AW139 continues to maintain its best-selling and world leading position with orders for nearly 1100 units placed by over 270 customers in around 70 countries and more than 900 flying globally. The European market accounts for almost 30% of total AW139 sales.

    Leonardo is among the top ten global players in Aerospace, Defence and Security and Italy’s main industrial company. Organised into seven business divisions (Helicopters; Aircraft; Aero-structures; Airborne & Space Systems; Land & Naval Defence Electronics; Defence Systems; Security & Information Systems), Leonardo operates in the most competitive international markets by leveraging its areas of technology and product leadership. Listed on the Milan Stock Exchange (LDO), in 2017 Leonardo recorded consolidated restated revenues of 11.7 billion Euros and has a significant industrial presence in Italy, the UK, the U.S. and Poland.
