The AW169 has arrived at Heli-Expo straight from Alaska where last month it successfully completed extreme cold weather trials in the framework of civil certification.
Excellent performance and system reliability were demonstrated at temperatures down to - 40 C°. This latest testing followed a series of hot & high trials in Arizona last year which confirmed the aircraft’s excellent performance in the most demanding environmental conditions.
The AW169 will soon be certified to fly a wide range of missions in the extremes of temperature and altitude across the globe.
