Leonardo, with more than 900 helicopters in VIP configuration flying in the skies, is the first original equipment manufacturer in the world for multi-engine aircraft of this type. In fact, the company holds around 40 per cent of the global VIP and corporate multi-engine market and over 30 per cent of the helicopters in service in Europe.
Its largest product range of VIP helicopters, comprising more than 10 models, is dedicated to all the major transport missions: charter, schedule, air-taxi, sightseeing, private and VVIP/government.
Its model range includes the AW109 light twin series—both the Trekker and GrandNew helicopters; others from the AW Family include the light intermediate model AW169, the intermediate and best-in-its-class AW139 and the AW189 for medium-class weight. Furthermore in the intermediate class, VIP configuration is included with the AW609 tiltrotor too.
These helicopter types conduct missions including charter and air-taxi services to provide the best possible ways to optimise business travel. Heli-yachting operations are also available thanks to the company’s extensive heli-deck operations experience, meaning that yacht and superyacht owners can expect fully bespoke expertise.
Last but not least, Leonardo can cater for missions where VVIP configuration is a priority, providing the most luxurious, safe and secure aircraft to match higher VVIP and government transport expectations. The features of these helicopters include best-in-class performance, the latest certification and safety standards, modern design, spacious and comfortable cabins, high customisation levels and comprehensive technical support and training services.
Leonardo’s helicopter total fleet, currently in service, counts more than 5000 aircraft all over the world.
