Synergy Aerospace Signs A Contract For Twelve AgustaWestland Helicopters

AgustaWestland is pleased to announce that Synergy Aerospace, a division of Synergy Group, has signed a contract for twelve more helicopters including AW109 Power, Grand and AW139 models. This latest contract is part of the framework of the multi-year contract and distribution agreement signed in July 2006 which agreed the acquisition of 56 helicopters. This latest order is additional to the eighteen helicopters already ordered by Synergy Aerospace.

The helicopters will be used primarily for VIP/Corporate and offshore transport and will be produced at AgustaWestland's production facilities in Philadelphia, USA and Vergiate, Italy. "Our alliance with Synergy Aerospace has further strengthened AgustaWestland's presence in the Brazilian market", said Renzo Lunardi, Senior Vice President Commercial Business Unit, AgustaWestland. "This purchase, which follows the one signed last March ensures that future operators of AgustaWestland helicopters in Brazil will receive attractive delivery positions and a level of service that is second-to-none."

AgustaWestland's light twins are the leaders in the Brazilian helicopter market with almost 50 helicopters now in service, representing a market share of over 65% of the light twin fleet, which is expected to exceed 80 helicopters by mid-2009. This contract also represents a further success for the AW139 and the third major contract for the aircraft in South America.

AgustaWestland do Brasil, an AgustaWestland company, supports the Brazilian fleet through its Service Centre in Sao Paulo and through Ultra-Rev, an Authorised Service Centre in Rio de Janeiro. AgustaWestland Philadelphia is responsible for sales, assembly, customization and support of the AW109 Power, Grand, AW139 and AW119 Ke product lines throughout the Americas.
