Energy Services operators have rigorous standards with safety as a priority and the AW169 has been designed to fully comply with this demanding market’s requirements. The latest-generation 4.5 tonne class twin-engine helicopter’s excellent performance and handling qualities ensure maximum safety in all weather conditions.

Unique among helicopters in its class, the AW169 is fully compliant with the latest certification standards. Safety is ensured from the very start of operations, with high ground clearance of main and tail rotors offering unmatched levels of protection during the boarding phase even in the constrained spaces typical of energy operations.

All-weather operations require exceptional external visibility, which the AW169 offers along with leading-edge avionics, maximising situational awareness, critical for safe flight in demanding Offshore operations, day and night. Even before take-off the AW169 is ready for crew and passengers, with a unique APU mode providing electrical and hydraulic power with rotors stopped. 

Every person counts when travelling to/from Offshore sites, and a large, regular cabin carries up to 10 passengers in a comfortable and safe environment. A specifically tailored interior configuration for wind farm operations seats up to 7 passengers, facilitating hoisting operations.
