    Helis, May 15, 2020 - The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) denied the protest from Airbus regarding their lost in the US Navy competition for a new Advanced Helicopter Training System (AHTS).

    Leonardo released a statement following the decision : “On Tuesday, the US Government Accountability Office denied the protest of the Navy’s contract award of the Advanced Helicopter Training System (AHTS) program to Leonardo. As a result, Leonardo has immediately resumed work on AHTS in Philadelphia, readying the next generation of U.S. Naval Aviators.”
