The AW109, originally designated A109, is a lightweight, twin-engine, multi-purpose helicopter, produced by AgustaWestland, now as Leonardo. The A109 was initially designed in the late 1960s, however it was intended to be a single-engine commercial helicopter. Subsequently, due to high demands for a twin-engine helicopter the designs were re-developed, with twin Allison 250-C14 powerplants. The A109 was introduced in 1976, and became a significant succes accross several utility roles. These include militray tasks, as well as light transport, medevac and search-and-rescue purposes. The A109 was the first all-Italian helicopter to be mass-produced, with productions ongoing to this day. A later variant was the A109C, with an eight-seat configuration for civilian use, and powered by Allison Model 250-C20R-1 engines.
