The versatile light single-engine helicopter
Mission versatility is essential for modern helicopter operations. The AW09 is a next-generation, high performance, single-engine helicopter offering the built-in versatility to tackle multiple missions. It is developed by Kopter Group, acquired by Leonardo in 2020. Capable of carrying up to eight passengers, the AW09 delivers next-generation technology and safety allowing operators to go further and do more.
The AW09 is optimised for numerous roles, including passenger transport, utility, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and security missions. Its combination of high cruise speed, long range and low noise profile make it a flexible and efficient solution for today’s rotary wing market.
The spacious, versatile and quiet cabin features a flat floor and high ceiling to maximise the available space, as well as individual crashworthy seats. The interior can be reconfigured quickly and easily for multi-mission operations and there are sliding and clamshell doors for easy access.
