Contract Administered Through The U.S. Army Aviation And Missile Command
AgustaWestland North America, Inc. has delivered AW139 aircraft to the Egyptian Air Force via its contract with the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) Contracting Center for Foreign Military Sales. We're fully aware of the team it takes to put these aircraft into the hands of our international partners," said Jeffrey Young, director of the Security Assistance Management Directorate at the recent delivery ceremony.
Produced in the United States at the company's Philadelphia, PA, facility, AgustaWestland configured the AW139s for the Egyptian Air Force's search and rescue missions. "AgustaWestland is proud to have delivered these aircraft early and on budget," said R. Scott Rettig, chief executive officer of AgustaWestland North America. "The team fulfilled our commitment to exceed our customer's expectations and we are confident that the AW139 will be an enormous asset for the Egyptian Air Force's helicopter fleet."
Now that the aircraft have been delivered, AgustaWestland continues to support the U.S. Army by training aircrews and providing spare parts to ensure successful fielding of the aircraft. With unmatched performance and safety levels, the AW139 offers inherent multi-role capability and flexibility of operation for a host of mission needs. (AW139 stock image courtesy AgustaWestland)
