    AW189 Achieves EASA Certification

    AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce that the new generation AW189 medium twin engine helicopter has been issued with type certification by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on 7th February 2014.

    After successfully completing the Type Board Meeting last September, EASA completed the final validation activities of the first fully representative production aircraft. Delivery of the first two AW189s in offshore configuration to Bristow Group is imminent.

    Less than three years after the AW189 was unveiled at Paris Air Show in June 2011 AgustaWestland has achieved EASA certification thanks to strong collaboration between the EASA and AgustaWestland teams.

    With the AW189, AgustaWestland has responded to market demand for a new generation medium twin-engine helicopter and achieved its aim of greatly reducing the time to market, whilst meeting the most stringent requirements set by the certification authorities and by the market.

    The certified AW189 helicopter configuration is fully compliant with the requirements for offshore oil and gas operations and includes all the relevant kits and avionic features to perform this demanding role. The certified flight envelope for the aircraft enables operators to undertake operations in demanding and harsh environments from initial entry into service.
