The aircraft was accepted by Tan Sri Syed Azman Syed Ibrahim, Group Managing Director of Weststar from Bruno Spagnolini, CEO, AgustaWestland. The 500th delivery comes just one year after AgustaWestland delivered the 400th helicopter.
“The AW139 continues to be the outright class leader worldwide and we are delighted that we are celebrating the delivery of the 500th aircraft with one of our most important customers, Weststar Aviation Services,” said Bruno Spagnolini, CEO, AgustaWestland, at the ceremony. “We look forward to achieving similar success with the AW139’s new family members, the AW169 and AW189, which have the same high performance and modern technology features that have made the AW139 such a success.”
“As the leading offshore aviation services provider in the region, Weststar Aviation Services is proud to be affiliated with the top helicopter manufacturers in the world and honoured to be a part of this impressive milestone for AgustaWestland. The AW139 helicopter is truly the best in its class and it has served us very well. I am sure that AgustaWestland will continue to enjoy great success with the AW139 and its variants,” said Tan Sri Syed Azman Syed Ibrahim, Group Managing Director of Weststar.
