Leonardo AW139 Global Helicopter Fleet Sets Outstanding Milestone


The AW139 intermediate twin-engine helicopter global fleet has recently reached an outstanding milestone of two million flight hours, across all operational scenarios on five continents, while performing a wide range of missions with commercial, government and military operators. This accomplishment was reached just three years after the achievement of the first million, showing impressive reliability, effectiveness, safety, and supportability across a range of missions.


With the AW139 fleet leader having exceeded 12,000 hours on a single aircraft, nearly 900 units are today in service out of more than 1,000 on order by more than 300 customers in 80 countries worldwide. The global reach of the AW139, assembled in Philadelphia and Vergiate, has resulted in the type becoming a benchmark as the best-selling helicopter in its weight category and the most successful helicopter program in the past 15 years. The type covers the widest range of applications with high flexibility


including SAR, EMS, law enforcement, homeland security, patrol, firefighting, disaster relief, offshore transport, VIP/Corporate transport, utility and military duties.


This latest operational achievement is the combined result of the AW139’s design, quality, performance and market success as well as the company’s capability in supporting the worldwide fleet. The milestone was made possible through the variety of Leonardo services and support packages and the extended support network distributed in geographies around the world.
