PROVEN PERFORMANCE, WORLDWIDE

AW109 Power delivers outstanding multi-role flexibility for government and commercial operators.

Operators benefit from high cruise speed and excellent performance, with competitive acquisition and direct operating costs. The platform is mission-capable day or night, for single or dual pilot IFR operations and compliant with JAR OPS 3 requirements for Category A operations, even at Max Take-Off Weight (MTOW).


FADEC-controlled twin-turbine engines and redundancy in all critical systems ensure safety of operation in the most demanding circumstances.
