AgustaWestland will attend FIDAE 2014 showing an Italian Air Force AW139M intermediate twin and a single engine AW119Ke for firefighting applications operated by FAASA, thus showcasing both military and parapublic capabilities.

“AgustaWestland boasts a leading presence in the South American VIP/corporate market, particularly in Brazil, especially via its light twin range of products with the Grand/GrandNew model become the benchmark with over 100 units sold in Central and South America, meaning more than 30 percent of all the Grand/GrandNew aircraft on order worldwide,” the company said in a statement.

The AW119Kx single engine, thanks to its outstanding performance and cabin space, has proven perfectly suited for parapublic roles. As the world best-selling medium twin and the sole new generation helicopter in its category, the AW139 has found growing success in the region, particularly for offshore transport missions.

AgustaWestland do Brasil, an AgustaWestland company, supports the Brazilian and South America’s fleet with a comprehensive package of maintenance services through its Service Centre in Sao Paulo.

In addition, a number of independent maintenance centres, certified by the Authority, and AgustaWestland Authorized Service Centers, such as Helipark and Lider, operate in the country. AgustaWestland do Brasil is to undergo a major expansion with the building of a new facility in Sao Paulo.

The new facility is designed to cope with the expected introduction of significant numbers of new AW189 and AW169 helicopters into the Brazilian market.
