: 04 March, 2007  (Company News)
Fumigación Aérea Andaluza SA (FAASA) Purchases Six AgustaWestland AW119 Ke Helicopters
AgustaWestland is pleased to announce that Spanish company Fumigación Aérea Andaluza SA (FAASA) has purchased six all-new AW119 Ke single-engine helicopters with an option for further two. FAASA is one of the leading Spanish companies providing helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft for fire-fighting.

AgustaWestland is committed to further expand its commercial presence in the Spanish market where this AW119 Ke success in the fire-fighting configuration follows the excellent results achieved by other AgustaWestland models in the EMS/SAR market. The FAASA purchase also marks an important step in consolidating the presence of AgustaWestland in the European single engine Helicopter market.

The AW119 Ke can be equipped with the Model 323 Fire Attack System, designed by Simplex, or with a more traditional bambi bucket. The Model 323 Fire Attack System features an aerodynamic tank design that enables the AW119 Ke to be flown at a high speeds during fire-fighting operations. The system is designed for quick installation and removal with the process taking less than fifteen minutes, without the use of tools. The AW119 Ke combined with the Model 323 Fire Attack System can carry the greatest water volume capacity (1,200 litres / 317 US Gallons) of any Helicopter in its weight class. The increased altitude performance and a wider temperature operating range of AW119 Ke improves further the fire fighting capabilities of the A119.
