History

The AW-139 is a new generation medium twin-turbine helicopter representing the standard from which a series of models are developed. Designed with multi-role capability and operational flexibility, the AW-139 can carry two pilots and up to 15 passengers, in a wide and comfortable cabin. The wide baggage compartment can be reached both from the cabin and from the exterior. The AW-139 offers the best ratio between usable load and maximum weight compared to any other twin-engine medium helicopter. The two Pratt & Whitney PT6C-67C turbines, together with the 5-blades main rotor, offer a high cruise speed even with full load. The engines offer an exceptional power compared to the weight granting “A” category operational performance, without any limitations and in a wide range of conditions such as hot temperature and high altitude. It is equipped with advanced technology nav/com systems including Honeywell Primus Epic totally integrated avionic system AFCS 4-digital and big LCD color screens. As a result of the new design approach. the AW-139 has a lower number of components and gives an easy access to all the simplified maintenance systems. The AW-139 can be used in a wide range of civil and paramilitary applications. such as: executive, VIP, EMS/SAR, Open Government Partnership (OGP) support at sea, firefighting, law enforcement, border patrol and coastguard. After the delivery of the 1000th helicopter on 20 September 2019, and totaling today over 1250 deliveries, the AW-139 is the best sold Agusta’s product as ever, overcoming the famous A-109.
The exhibited model is the 2nd prototype used for the certification of the Honeywell “Primus EPIC” avionic system, that originated the I-EPIC registration, still named AB-139 and renamed AW-139 after Bell abandoned the program and Agusta joined Westland in 2000.
A full scale mock-up used by Agusta for the EMC (electromagnetic compatibility tests) is shown in the Simulator area and here modified as helicopter flight simulator.
