Takes Delivery Of Fifth AW139
The New Jersey State Police Department has taken delivery of their fifth and final AW139 helicopter under their fleet replacement program. The aircraft were produced at AgustaWestland’s Philadelphia, Pennsylvania production facility. AgustaWestland announced the delivery of the aircraft Monday at Farnborough.
With this new fleet of AW139s, the New Jersey State Police has expanded its capability to meet their airborne law enforcement and aeromedical missions. The AW139 is a true multi-mission aircraft that is performing both homeland security and public service missions throughout North America. Operators include the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Los Angeles Fire Department and several major aeromedical and rescue organisations. The AW139 has also been selected by Maryland State Police Aviation Command with the first helicopters delivering in the second half of 2012, ahead of the currently contracted delivery schedule. The safety, economy, performance and capabilities of the AW139 make it the world’s best selling aircraft in its class.
"These helicopters enhance our response capabilities in tactical and search and rescue operations. Our members can reach areas that are otherwise inaccessible, such as mountainside locations or disabled ships on the water. The AW139 allows us to extract victims and provide immediate Medevac to area hospitals, which will save lives," said Major Brian McPherson, Commanding Officer of the Special Operations Section.
