The AW169M is the military variant of the AW169; the brand new 4-5 tonne class twin-engine helicopter, designed to meet the stringent FAR/JAR/EASA safety and mission requirements of military, homeland security and government users.
The platform features outstanding power, agility and manoeuvrability, which provides excellent handling characteristics in a wide range of operating conditions including ‘hot and high’. The unique transmission design provides power to hydraulic, electrical and air conditioning systems with rotors stopped (APU mode) optimising response time and availability.
The cabin is the most spacious in its class and features a constant height cross section for rapid reconfiguration and ease of access. Pilots benefit from a latest-generation, open-architecture avionics suite, including fully digital glass cockpit and unprecedented external visibility, providing superior tactical and situational awareness.
