AGUSTA WESTLAND AW109

The Agusta Westland AW109 is a lightweight, twin-engine, eight-seater multi-purpose helicopter built by the Anglo-Italian manufacturer AgustaWestland. The rotorcraft had the distinction of being the first Italian helicopter to be mass-produced.

Developed as the A109 by Agusta, it originally entered service in 1976 and has since been used in various roles including light transport, medevac, search-rescue and military roles. The AW109 has been in continuous production for 40 years. The AgustaWestland AW119 is a derivative of the AW109, the main difference being that it is powered by a single engine.
