AW189

The new state-of-the-art 8 tonne class AW189 is designed in answer to the growing market demand for a versatile, affordable, multirole helicopter.

Optimised to operate in harsh conditions undertaking long range, deep water missions typical of the Offshore industry, the AW189 combines high performance, competitive operating economics and superior passenger comfort. Exceeding the most recent FAA and EASA Part 29 safety requirements and the stringent safety needs of the Oil and Gas industry, the AW189 is the helicopter of choice for demanding operations.

The first showing of a production AW189 at Heli Expo follows the award of EASA certification on 7th February 2014, which was achieved less than three years after the unveiling of the type at Paris Air Show in June 2011.
