Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
AgustaWestland Helicopters
: 03 October, 2008  (Company News)
AgustaWestland and Kaigai Aviotech have announced that SECOM, the largest security company in Japan, has taken delivery of its corporate-configured AW109 Power helicopter.
The official ceremony has been performed at Japan Aerospace 2008 today. This Helicopter was received by Kaigai Aviotech Corporation early summer to undergo final customization and the AW109 Power has now achieved operational readiness to carry out transport duties for SECOMís staff and supplies for BCP (Business Continuity Plan in case of disasters such as earthquake, etc.).

With over 460 helicopters ordered for both commercial and government purposes from nearly 50 countries, the AW109 Power has set the standard in the world light twin market for various tasks and has become the benchmark for VIP/corporate transport. SECOM selected the AW109 Power for its spacious comfortable cabin, high safety, reliability, serviceability and outstanding performance including its maximum cruise speed of 154 knots (285 km/h), which is typically 20% higher than other helicopters in the same weight class. SECOMís Helicopter adds to other VIP/corporate-configured AW109 Powers already sold to customers in Japan. The AW109 Power has also found remarkable success in Japan for law enforcement purposes.
