Aero Toy Store Orders Twelve AgustaWestland Helicopters
AgustaWestland is pleased to announce the sale of twelve helicopters to Aero Toy Store. This US company based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has ordered four AW119 Ke single engine, four Grand light twin and four AW139 medium twin helicopters. Aero Toy Store took delivery of a Grand Helicopter in 2006 and this order further confirms the US Company's confidence in the AgustaWestland range of modern high performance commercial helicopters.

Renzo Lunardi, Senior Vice President Commercial Business Unit, AgustaWestland said 'We are delighted by Aero Toy Store's decision to buy the AW119 Ke and the AW139 together with additional Grand helicopters. This purchase highlights AgustaWestland's continuing success in the all important US market, where our products are gaining market share in the offshore, corporate and public service markets'.

'AgustaWestland is a preeminent Helicopter manufacturer and we are pleased to have had the opportunity to make this purchase', said Aero Toy Store Chairman and CEO Morris Shirazi. 'These twelve aircraft will be transformed into Aero Toy Store's first Pininfarina Edition helicopters, which will provide owners the ultimate flying experience'.

The AW119 Ke, an evolution of the successful A119 Koala, has achieved immediate success in the market following its launch in February this year. Its success being due to its excellent performance, spacious cabin and an unrivalled payload/range capability. The Grand, developed to meet a wide range of market requirements, provides levels of cabin space and payload that until now could only be met by larger, more expensive helicopters. Over 160 orders have been placed to date for this successful intermediate size Helicopter with light twin economics. The AW139 since its introduction has been the best selling medium twin in the world. The AW139 sets a new standard in its category and is now the aircraft of choice for many applications including EMS/SAR, offshore transport, VIP/Corporate, Law Enforcement and Governmental purposes. Sales of the AW139 have now exceeded 260, with aircraft in service in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Middle East and Africa.
