AW 189

Leonardo has delivered its AW189 helicopters to the Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department (Jabatan Bomba dan Penyelamat Malaysia) and South Korean Seoul Fire Department to carry out fire-fighting operations in the two countries.

The twin-engine, medium-lift choppers will also soon be delivered to the Tokyo Fire Department, the company said in a statement Monday.

The helicopter is derived from the AW149, and shares similarities with the company’s AW139 and AW169 choppers.
