Leonardo Helicopters Sees Solid Growth in Europe

Leonardo Helicopters (Booth T71) has reported stronger growth in the European market than in previous years, and believes that “even in case of a market downturn, the flexibility of our helicopters allow us to be relatively safe because we can address all types of requirements.” The company has final assembly lines in Vergiate and Tessera, Italy; Yeovil, UK; Świdnik, Poland; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

“The state of the market is better than it used to be, and Leonardo is very optimistic about its helicopter family, which includes the AW168, AW139 and AW189,” Emilio Dalmasso, head of global sales, told AIN. “Our helicopters are perfect for a number of missions such as EMS/SAR, offshore transport, and corporate/VIP transport.”

The AW169, he noted, “has registered a growing success with almost 60 units delivered and a solid and growing order book, especially in the VIP/corporate transport and EMS/parapublic sectors.”
