Leonardo will present its Virtual Enhanced Training Device, a fixed-base flight simulator for the AW609, as well as an AW169 helicopter set up in an Emergency Medical Services configuration, and a dedicated area showcasing the Agusta VIP helicopter brand at this years HAI HELI-EXPO.
Two years after the last edition, where the company announced the takeover of helicopter company Kopter, Leonardo will be presenting plenty of new developments at HAI Heli-Expo 2022.
Heli-Expo, the world’s largest civil helicopter show, opens tomorrow in Dallas. The event will see the participation of the globe’s most prominent helicopter manufacturers, professionals, and service providers.
North America is the world’s biggest market for civilian and public services helicopters, representing over 30% of the entire global fleet (more than 8,000 helicopters). Over the last 5 years Leonardo has generated more revenues from civil helicopters in the United States than any other manufacturer. The company also plays an important role on some of US Department of Defence programmes. Leonardo is a prime contractor in charge of the production and supply of TH-73A training craft for future naval aviators in the US Navy, and in collaboration with prime contractor Boeing on the US Air Force’s MH-139 helicopter, a model based on the AW139 platform.
