First Of Two AW101 VVIP Helicopters Delivered To Turkmenistan

Contract Was Signed At Farnborough International Air Show In 2010

AgustaWestland has delivered the first of AW101 VVIP helicopter to Turkmenistan Airlines. The contract for the two aircraft was signed at the 2010 Farnborough International Air Show. Assembly of the aircraft took place at AgustaWestland’s Yeovil facility in South West England. AgustaWestland has also provided pilot and maintainer training and an initial spares package under the contract.

AgustaWestland’s CEO, Daniele Romiti commented “It is a great honour that the AW101 has been selected to provide transport for Turkmenistan Airlines. We believe the AW101 is the most capable, comfortable and safe helicopter in its class and we look forward to seeing both aircraft in service.”

The AW101 has a very spacious cabin, high levels of passenger comfort and the very latest communications features, making it the ideal helicopter for the transport of Heads of State and other VVIP transport duties. Its cabin is 30% larger than its nearest competitor and it can fly up to 1000 km, whilst multiple redundancy of critical systems and components gives the aircraft unmatched levels of safety and survivability.
