Helitech Asia is Leonardo AW09 Distributor for SE Asia

Our Bureau - : May 25, 2023 - : 3:57 am

Leonardo has announced the recent appointment of Helitech Asia PTE LTD as Distributor for its latest generation single-turbine helicopter, the AW09, in Southeast Asia.

The announcement was made at the ongoing air and maritime show.

The Helitech Asia team with its extensive aeronautical experience in the region is Leonardo’s ideal partner to sell the state-of-the-art AW09, whose outstanding cabin gives the aircraft an unequalled mission capability and versatility, allowing to perform various missions, ranging from passenger transport, utility, EMS or law enforcement. 

At Heli-Expo 2023 in USA in March Leonardo had announced preliminary sales contracts for over 50 AW09s with various customers, and these included 10 units and 10 options for Helitech Asia PTE LTD.

The South-East Asian company will distribute the AW09 in the markets of Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, South Korea, and Vietnam, where customers have expressed a strong interest in acquiring the new helicopter. Acquired three years ago by Leonardo, the AW09 perfectly complements Leonardo’s product range in the Long Light Single segment, introducing an all-new design aircraft to sustain a long-term competitive positioning in this weight category.
