Pakistan has signed a contract with Leonardo-Finmeccanica for an undisclosed number of AW139 intermediate twin engine helicopters to be used for transport and EMS missions.
This event sets a major milestone for Leonardo and further expands the already successful presence of the AW139 and other models in the Country.
Pakistan is one of several nations who have chosen or are already operating the AW139 for a range of government roles including Italy, Ireland, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Thailand to name a few.
The new generation AW139 sets new standards in the market with advanced technology and class leading performance, reliability, safety, versatility and cabin space. The aircraft has outstanding one engine inoperative capabilities, even in hot and high operating conditions, making it ideally suited to operate in harsh high temperature and high altitude environments. The advanced integrated cockpit minimises pilot workload, allowing the crew to concentrate on mission objectives.
