With a global fleet of more than 900 helicopters carrying out a range of passenger missions, including private transport, corporate transport, charter, scheduled services and VIP/government transport, and 40% share in the world’s multiengine VIP helicopter market, Leonardo is the global leader in this sector.
The launch of the new Agusta VIP brand in late 2021 confirmed the company’s commitment to provide its private transport helicopter users with distinguished characteristics and to stay at the forefront of this sector: the fastest helicopters, the latest in technology, highly customized solutions and configurations, and an inimitable Italian style.
Last but not least, the revolutionary AW609 tiltrotor will soon revolutionize air transport uniquely combining helicopter-like vertical take-off and landing and hovering capability with turboprop airplane-like speed, range and altitude.
The new Agusta brand, extensively presented during major business aviation events in Europe, Latin and North America this year, updates the distinctive look that made it so sought-after by adding more solutions, services and technological advances.
Plans for new options and services dedicated to VIP/corporate helicopter operators under Agusta include the Interior Moods layouts, a new integrated maintenance service plan and a dedicated Agusta section in the Leonardo Customer Portal.
The Interior Moods consist of three new options, all inspired by iconic cities. These layouts feature stylish and specific colors, materials, seat configurations and on-board options. They are designed to allow customers to select and create their ideal and perfect environment, mirroring their own distinctive tastes, while also meeting their needs.
From the sense of warmth, harmony and pureness of “Florence,” to the juxtaposition of opposites like tradition and innovation of “London,” to the energy and passion of the cosmopolitan “New York.”
AGUSTA for YOU
The new AGUSTA for YOU helicopter service plan, developed specifically to meet the needs of corporate rotorcraft operators, is intended to increase aircraft availability and reduce inventory costs, while optimizing expenses by covering both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance of airframe/avionics components and other items.
In addition, on the Leonardo Helicopter Customer Portal, VIP operators will be able to check the progress and status of their aircraft manufacturing and testing, with images in real time.
Overall, these advancements are aimed at delivering clear answers to meet exclusivity requirements, making ownership and operation of an Agusta helicopter a true 360-degree experience from day one.
