The AW119Kx, an evolution of the successful A119Ke, is a spacious top of the range single turbine helicopter developed to enhance safety levels and providing high productivity and performance at a competitive price.  A modern glass cockpit configured with Garmin’s G1000H(TM) Integrated Flight Deck system enhances situational awareness. The avionic suite comprises a Synthetic Vision System with Highway In The Sky (HITS) depiction, moving map and a Helicopter Terrain Avoidance Warning System (HTAWS) with worldwide terrain and obstacle database. The large unobstructed cabin permits rapid reconfiguration for a variety of missions such as passenger transport, emergency medical service, and law enforcement applications. The versatility and high power margins of the helicopter deliver outstanding performance in a wide range of operating conditions that make it a very cost-effective helicopter. AW119Kx VIP/Corporate customers can benefit from unparalleled comfort levels among single turbine helicopters in ‘club’ seating configuration of the cabin, which is separated from the cockpit area. A generous baggage compartment in the tail section accommodates up to 150 kg of luggage. A high passenger load combined with range capability has led the helicopter to be successfully introduced into Offshore applications. The Emergency Medical Service variant accommodates up to two stretchers and two medical attendants, in a fully medicalised cabin. When operational demands call for a single turbine powered helicopter, no other aircraft can match the cost effectiveness and superior performance of the AW119Kx.
With its large fuselage, the AW119Kx offers its 6/7 passengers a spacious cabin and both internal and external baggage space. The interiors can be customised to meet the highest standards of comfort. The AW119Kx is also provided with long range capability thanks to high fuel capacity.
Unique amongst light single turbine helicopters is AW119Kx’s ability to convert to a Medevac/EMS configuration that can accommodate up to two stretchers together with medical attendants. Full patient access is provided, without any intrusion into the cockpit area. The internal layout includes provision for the installation of all necessary medical equipment to treat patients whilst in transit. Two standard rails are positioned both in the cabin rear bulkhead and on the upper side panels which include outlets for oxygen, emergency air and power.
The AW119Kx can be equipped with the new Model 323 Fire Attack System, designed by Simplex, or with a more traditional Bambi bucket. The Model 323 features aerodynamic design characteristics that enable the AW119Kx to be flown at high speed for fire fighting missions. The system is designed for installation and removal in less than fifteen minutes, without the use of tools.
The AW119Kx provides exceptional versatility to support law enforcement roles and is equipped with special police equipment such as FLIR/LLTV camera, search light, loudspeaker and rappelling kit.
The AW119Kx is well suited for demanding offshore missions. It is fast and has the largest cabin and luggage capability of any helicopter in its class. For offshore missions, the AW119Kx can be equipped with air conditioning, Traffic Advisory System (TAS), ELT and skid mounted pop-out floats.
