AW169

The AW169 is a new twin-engine helicopter type designed to meet the growing market demand for a versatile and multi-role 4.5-tonne class rotorcraft. Engineered to satisfy the operational and mission requirements of the most demanding parapublic and commercial operators, the AW169 employs new technologies to achieve unique adaptability across multiple applications with very competitive economics.

The AW169 is the first brand-new helicopter in this class in decades and is the natural complement to the AgustaWestland highly successful commercial product line. With the addition of the AW169, AgustaWestland is able to deliver a uniquely competitive and comprehensive offering of multi engine helicopters in the fast growing market for three to seven-tonne maximum weight categories.
Applications
» LAW ENFORCEMENT 
Ideal for airborne Law Enforcement operations, the AW169 can integrate advanced electro-optical and communications mission equipment. The generous cabin space and exceptional accessibility enhances operational effectiveness and flexibility. A dedicated rappelling and fast roping capability makes the aircraft also an ideal platform for special forces missions.
» EMS 
Suited to both primary and secondary EMS missions, the AW169 can accommodate one or two stretchers, either longitudinally or transversally, especially important for operations where in-flight stretcher recovery is required. The cabin can also accommodate wheeled stretchers and can be configured with a full suite of advanced life support equipment.
» OFFSHORE
The AW169 can carry two pilots and up to 8/10 passengers in the main cabin, all on crashworthy seats. Extensive cabin space and low levels of noise and vibration ensure maximum comfort. Full safety provisions such as floatation systems and life rafts together with easy egress make the AW169 a suitable platform for overwater and offshore operations.
» VIP/CORPORATE
The AW169 can carry two pilots and up to 8/10 passengers in the main cabin, all on crashworthy seats. Extensive cabin space and low levels of noise and vibration ensure maximum comfort. Executive time and reach is maximised through the high cruise speed and range of the helicopter.
» SAR 
Suited to both primary and secondary EMS missions, the AW169 can accommodate one or two stretchers, either longitudinally or transversally, especially important for operations where in-flight stretcher recovery is required. The cabin can also accommodate wheeled stretchers and can be configured with a full suite of advanced life support equipment. Long range maritime SAR missions are enabled by flexible fuel tank configurations.
