AgustaWestland is pleased to announce that Synergy Aerospace, a division of Synergy Group, has signed a contract for twelve more helicopters including AW109 Power, Grand and AW139 models. This latest contract is part of the framework of the multi-year contract and distribution agreement signed in July 2006 which agreed the acquisition of 56 helicopters. This latest order is additional to the eighteen helicopters already ordered by Synergy Aerospace.
The helicopters will be used primarily for VIP/Corporate and offshore transport and will be produced at AgustaWestland’s production facilities in Philadelphia, USA and Vergiate, Italy. “Our alliance with Synergy Aerospace has further strengthened AgustaWestland’s presence in the Brazilian market”, said Renzo Lunardi, Senior Vice President Commercial Business Unit, AgustaWestland. “This purchase, which follows the one signed last March ensures that future operators of AgustaWestland helicopters in Brazil will receive attractive delivery positions and a level of service that is second-to-none.”
