AgustaWestland - AW139 Helicopter for Beijing

AgustaWestland Helicopters : 31 July, 2007  (Company News)
Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau Takes Delivery of One AW109 Power and One AW139 Helicopter
AgustaWestland has announced the delivery of one AW109 Power light twin and one AW139 medium twin Helicopter to the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau. The handover ceremony took place AgustaWestland's Vergiate facility in Italy on 28th July 2007. These two aircraft are part of an order placed in June 2006 that also includes two CA109 Power helicopters produced by the Jiangxi Change Agusta Helicopter (CAH) joint venture company in China. The contract was the first contract awarded to CAH, which was established in 2005 to meet the growing Chinese light twin civil, law enforcement and emergency medical service Helicopter market. These helicopters will perform law enforcement and security operations during the 2008 Olympic Games.

Giuseppe Orsi, Chief Executive Officer, AgustaWestland said during the ceremony 'We are delighted the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau chose the AW109 Power and the AW139 helicopters to meet its demanding requirements for law enforcement operations, especially during the Olympic Games next year. AgustaWestland is committed to offer the best law enforcement helicopters and this delivery will dramatically enhance the operational capabilities and effectiveness of the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau'.

These deliveries strengthen the AW109 Power's position in the growing light twin Chinese market and mark the entrance of the AW139 in this market for law enforcement applications, while the AW139 presence in China is progressively getting stronger for several other commercial missions.

AgustaWestland's range of law enforcement-configured helicopters has experienced an increasing success in the Chinese market in recent years with various Helicopter types selected to perform the most demanding missions. The AW109 Power has been operating in China since 2004 when the Shenzhen Police took delivery of a helicopter.
