Advanced technology and safety

The AW169 ensures the highest levels of safety. It meets all the latest certification standards and regulations, while the glass cockpit combines latest-generation avionics with exceptional external visibility. This maximises situational awareness and minimises pilot workload during day and night operations, increasing operational safety.

Exceptional cabin flexibility

The helicopter has the largest cabin in its class. The flexible design can accommodate two stretchers, either longitudinally or transversely along with a full suite of advanced life-support equipment. Wide sliding doors allow easy access, while the spacious cabin ensures entire access to the patient. A large separated baggage compartment is available to store additional stretchers and equipment.

There when it counts

The AW169 ensures that air medical professionals can be there when it counts, providing the best patient care. APU mode enables operation of the environmental control system, radios and medical devices when the rotors are stopped. Capable provides Category A performance capabilities with no limitations in a wide range of operating conditions, including ‘hot and high’.
