: 02 May, 2008  (Application Story)
AgustaWestland has announced that Kaan Havacilik of Turkey has taken delivery of its first two AW109 Power light twin turbine engine helicopters.
The aircraft handover has been performed during an official ceremony held at AgustaWestland Vergiate plant today. These two helicopters are provided with a 6 seat and an exclusive 5 seat Elite VIP/corporate transport configuration respectively. The 6 seat-configured Helicopter will be operated by leading Turkish company Halikarnas.

AgustaWestland has experienced a significant growth in the Turkish commercial Helicopter market in recent years and has a longstanding presence in the country through both its products and commercial as well as industrial relationships with Turkish companies. Several AgustaWestland commercial helicopters of different types have been ordered in Turkey by various customers so far. Major results in the commercial Helicopter market have been achieved for VIP/corporate transport and EMS applications.

The AW109 Power is a highly versatile light twin engine Helicopter offering exceptional levels of performance with low operating costs. As the most successful AgustaWestland commercial Helicopter model in the Turkish market, the AW109 Power has been chosen by local operators to perform executive transport and emergency medical service operations. The AW109 Power is the best selling VIP-configured Helicopter in its class in the world marketplace leading AgustaWestland to reach a share in excess of 70%. The AW109 Power is also ideally suited for EMS purposes combining the finest patient care environment, unmatched performance, high safety standard and high operational availability and serviceability.

Kaan Havacilik, located in Istanbul, is an established provider of Helicopter sales and services including executive air transport and air tours. Kaan Havacilik is also the distributor in Turkey for AgustaWestland‘s commercial helicopters and has also purchased AW119 Ke single engine as well as Grand light twin and AW139 medium twin helicopters. The rapid and noteworthy result achieved by AgustaWestland in Turkey leads Kaan Havacilik to exceed the originally estimated purchase needs and to foresee a constant growth in the next few years.

Founded in 1989 by starting public sea transportation, leading Turkish company Halikarnas expanded its business with water & oil transportation in 1992 and 1993. Following years brought many enhancements at Oil transportation, Shipping & Ship building. Chemical transportation started in 2005.
