Leonardo starts delivery of 16 AW101s to Norway

Leonardo has delivered the first of 16 AW101 helicopters to the Norwegian government for all-weather search and rescue missions.

After undergoing a period of operational test and evaluation at the Sola Air Base in southern Norway, the AW101s will enter service with the Royal Norwegian Air Force next year, and replace Sea King helicopters currently in service.

The other 15 helicopters will be delivered up until 2020 and will be deployed at each of the RNAF’s six main operating bases.
