Exclases Group, one of the key players in the distribution and after-sales services market for helicopter operators, will present a VIP configuration of multi-purpose AW139 at MAKS-2021 International Aviation and Space Salon show that will take place on July 20-25, 2021 in Zhukovsky.
AW139, an intermediate twin-engine helicopter, is a flagship model of Leonardo Helicopters, an Italian company. This is a fast and maneuverable civilian helicopter that can reach a speed of 309 km/h, unbelievable for a rotary-wing aircraft. AW139 outperforms its “class fellows” in the range by over 927 km, as well as in the cabin spaciousness, comfort, interior equipment, and, most importantly, in safety.
AW139 complies with the most recent requirements and has a shock absorbing landing gear and impact-resistant fuselage. AW139 is a certified Category A Performance Class 1 helicopter capable of vertical takeoff and landing at a maximum takeoff weight with one engine inoperative, both from a helipad and in the mountains. AW139 is the only helicopter in its class to comply with the latest JAR/FAR29 stringent requirements.
“Being the exclusive dealer of Leonardo Helicopters in Russia and the CIS, our company is pleased to show the helicopter called an “all-purpose SUV,” said Paul Ploshansky, CEO of Exclases Group, on the eve of the event. “AW139 can be operated in a dense urban environment and over a rocky mountainous terrain at daytime and at night as well as at any temperatures, during a snowfall and under high humidity conditions. The comprehensive de-icing system ensures that AW139 remains operational even in very harsh climatic conditions, which is particularly important for operation in the Russian North.”
The AW139 usage statistics around the world show that the helicopter is quite popular with customers in the corporate sector. The helicopter can take 15 passengers, therefore oil and gas companies purchase AW139 for safe, fast and economical transportation of their specialists.
AW139 has become indispensable in emergency situations for search and rescue operations and emergency medical services all over the world. The configuration of the spacious helicopter cabin can be easily changed to provide doctors with free access to medical equipment and patients. The helicopter is capable of carrying up to 5 medical professionals and 3 stretchers.
AW139 is a recognized benchmark for a rapid emergency response. The state-of-the-art cockpit with Honeywell Primus Epic all-digital display unit, 4-axis digital autopilot and advanced avionics ensures an outstanding situational awareness and improves mission performance.
AW139 helicopters have been produced in Russia for nearly 10 years by HeliVert, a Russian-Italian joint venture founded by Leonardo Helicopters and Russian Helicopters Holding Company. Russian and CIS customers can enjoy the unique advantage of not having to pay any import duties, which creates the price/quality ratio that no other helicopter of this class can compete against. The completion of the project unprecedented in the Russian aviation industry has been made possible by Exclases Group guaranteeing that enough production orders will be placed.
Exclases Group offers a full range of customer support services including supply of spare parts and equipment and organization of various training programs.
