Heli USA Airways Orders Seven AW119Ke Helicopters

AgustaWestland, a Finmeccanica company, is pleased to announce that Heli USA Airways has signed a contract for seven AW119Ke single engine helicopters. These aircraft will be based in Las Vegas and used to perform sightseeing operations across the Grand Canyon area. The first helicopter is expected to be delivered by this summer with deliveries of all aircraft to be completed by mid 2012. This latest contract further expands the presence of the AW119Ke in the US helicopter market where it has found increasing success for a wide range of applications.

Lou Bartolotta, Executive Vice President Sales for North America, AgustaWestland, said “It gives us great pleasure partnering with Heli USA Airways through the supply of the best helicopter in its class. Such a widely recognized player in the sightseeing operations field will perform a significant step forward in offering its customers an even more unique flight experience. Indeed the AW119Ke, thanks to its outstanding features, is the perfect single engine helicopter for the task.”

Heli USA Airways selected the AW119Ke for its superior performance in terms of speed, power margins and the largest cabin in its category offering excellent comfort with additional seating, increasing its passengers per flight and so maximizing business. Heli USA Airways’ AW119Kes will incorporate a range of tailored mission-dedicated features including enlarged windows for enhanced passenger vision and a selectable multi-language audio system for the benefit of foreign passengers.

The AW119Ke is a spacious eight-seat single engine helicopter developed to provide high levels of safety, productivity and performance at a competitive price. The large unobstructed cabin permits rapid re-configuration for a variety of missions including passenger transport, VIP/corporate transport, emergency medical service, offshore transport, law enforcement, fire fighting, utility and government duties. The high power margins deliver outstanding performance that makes the AW119Ke the most cost effective helicopter in its class. Over 190 helicopters have been ordered by almost 100 customers in approximately 30 countries so far.

Heli USA Airways provides sightseeing services in the Grand Canyon area with quick and safe daily flight departures just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, and the Historic Grand Canyon Ranch. The company is a certified FAA air carrier which requires the highest standards of pilot training and maintenance. Heli USA Airways owns and operates its own helicopters and vans.
