The latest addition to our successful range of EMS platforms, the AW169 offers operators exceptional cost effectiveness and mission capabilities that enable them to deliver world class aeromedical services to the populations they serve.”
Giampiero Pedone, Elitaliana’s managing director, said “We believe the all new AW169 helicopter, with its modern design, safety standards and mission capabilities, is the ideal solution for the future of our aeromedical transport and rescue operations. The partnership established with AgustaWestland is now even stronger and will provide a major contribution to a further growth of Elitaliana’s competitiveness.”
