Twin-Engined Helo Goes To Private Owner

Grand light twin helicopter sold in Russia has been delivered to

"The delivery of this Grand helicopter marks the entry into the
Russian market of this best selling light twin for VIP and

number of AW119 and AW109 Power helicopters that are already in
service with private and corporate clients in Russia."

advanced avionics, and low operating costs have helped the Grand
find marketplace success in a short time. Orders for over 230
helicopters have been placed by almost 130 customers in almost 30
