AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce the delivery of a GrandNew light twin helicopter to Eichsfeld Air Gmbh of Germany. Based in Berlin, this aircraft will enable Eichsfeld Air to resume its rotorcraft operations, performing missions across Germany as well as to the UK and Switzerland. The helicopter will also be operated in Cote d'Azur (France) and Sardinia (Italy) during the summer season.

This delivery further expands the presence of AgustaWestland commercial helicopters as well as that of the GrandNew model in Germany. The GrandNew, in a special VIP transport configuration, was chosen by Eichsfeld Air due to its top class performance, comfort, safety and design characteristics. Eichsfeld Air’s helicopter features an exclusive 4-seat VIP interior layout and a cabin roof-embedded video screen, specifically designed for this customer’s requirement.

The GrandNew features the most modern developments in avionics while retaining the outstanding characteristics of the Grand. The GrandNew is the first type certified light twin (CS/JAR/FAR 27) to enter service with a new EFIS featuring Synthetic Vision and the first helicopter in this class on the market fully compliant with the latest advanced global positioning system-based navigation requirements for all weather operations. The fastest helicopter in the light twin category, the GrandNew also features the largest and most comfortable cabin in its class.

The combination of world-class technology, performance, comfort and safety standards allow a unique flying experience and make the GrandNew the ideal solution for VIP/corporate transport missions. AgustaWestland offers its GrandNew customers comprehensive support and training packages to maximize operational effectiveness and safety while keeping operating costs low.  

Orders for more than 330 helicopters from the Grand series have been placed by over 200 customers in nearly 40 countries worldwide, to perform many missions including VIP/corporate transport, passenger transport, EMS, SAR, harbor pilot shuttle, maritime patrol, law enforcement and water pollution monitoring.
