AW189 helicopter obtains Russian civil certification

Finmeccanica-AgustaWestland announced today that the new AW189 super medium twin engine helicopter has obtained Russian Civil Certification. This achievement will allow the AW189 to be delivered to customers in Russia, opening up a further market for the AW189, which is already in service in various countries including UK, Denmark, UAE, Qatar, Malaysia. The AW189 is the market leader in its class due to its outstanding capacity and range, as well as its modern technology and meeting the very latest safety standards.

Civil Certification of the AW189 in Russia follows the recent order for ten units made by RN-Aircraft, a subsidiary of the oil company Rosneft, to perform transportation missions. Delivery of the aircraft will start at the end of 2015 and continue through 2017. Moreover, as already set out in the framework agreement signed in December 2014 and with the involvement of Russian Helicopters, a subsidiary of Rostec corporation, Rosneft plans to order up to 160 AW189 helicopters by 2025. The AW189 is perfectly suited to meet the evolving demand for this class of helicopter in the Russian market, which shows significant potential in the medium-to-long term.
