AW169 & AW189

Helicopters are a critical law enforcement and security tool. Leonardo’s Helicopters Division products, conforming to the latest regulatory and design standards, and the most common law enforcement requirements, are ideal for missions including surveillance/patrol, counterterrorism, border patrol, drug enforcement, aerial support, SAR and fire-fighting. The Division has nearly 70 years’ heritage in delivering customised helicopters to public services operators.

the AW189: Latest generation capabilities

The AW189, part of our AWFamily, is a fast and flexible, modern platform ideally suited to the demanding requirements of law enforcement operators.

Class-leading speed and range allow rapid intervention and are combined with the necessary endurance for effective patrol/surveillance missions, even in icing conditions. The new variant, the AW189K, further extends the helicopter’s range of operations to include hot and high conditions.

An advanced avionics suite with fully integrated digital glass cockpit delivers superior situational awareness and minimises pilot workload, increasing safety on challenging missions.

The AW189 also features a readily reconfigurable cabin, the largest in its class, with sliding doors to easily allow the carriage, fast roping/rappelling and rapid ingress/egress of personnel.

Our class-leading intermediate helicopter, the AW139, now offers operators greater capabilities than ever thanks to a new avionics software release and kit certification.

The Honeywell Primus Epic 2.0 Phase 8 software and EGPWS with offshore modes obtained EASA certification in June. This latest standard provides improved situational awareness and reduces workload during testing operations at night or in marginal weather.

Delivering greater mission capability and safety for all commercial and government missions, thanks to synthetic vision, advanced navigation and advanced collision avoidance, the Phase 8 update also has wireless connectivity embedded, providing high-speed flight plan transfer.

The AW139 is unmatched in its class, with a proven track record of outstanding mission performance in even the harshest conditions.
