The AgustaWestland AW169 is a twin-engine helicopter developed and manufactured by the helicopter division of Leonardo, formerly known as AgustaWestland. Described as a light-intermediate, twin-engine utility helicopter, the AW169 was designed with a focus on reducing production, operation, and maintenance costs. To achieve this, AgustaWestland decided to share the cockpit configuration and several components with the predecessor models AW139 and AW189.
The AW169’s final design features a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210A FADEC turboshaft powerplants, driving an advanced main rotor at variable speeds to reduce external noise and improve efficiency. Notably, the AW169 is equipped with electronically actuated landing gear, making it the first helicopter in its category with this capability.
