Airlift Northwest Takes Delivery of Two A109 Power EMS
Agusta Aerospace says Airlift Northwest, located in Seattle
Washington, has taken delivery of two A109 Power EMS helicopters
with four Agusta Grands to follow.
From coastal and island communities in Western Washington to
high desert communities in Eastern Washington, Airlift Northwest
provides medical transport to one of the largest and most
geographically varied service areas in the world. Airlift Northwest
said it chose the Power (file photo of type, above) and Grand
models because the aircraft can successfully meet the multiple
demands of this mission environment.
Massimo Pugnali, Agusta Aerospace Corporation Executive Vice
President for Business Development and Operations, said he's proud
to see that Airlift Northwest, a long time customer of Agusta, has
taken delivery of the two A109 Powers and will be the EMS launch
customer in the United States for the Agusta Grand helicopter,
which is the newest helicopter in the AgustaWestland product line.
The Agusta Grand bridges the gap between the light twin engine and
the intermediate helicopter size and performance.
