Leonardo (AgustaWestland) A109C

The AW109, originally designated A109, is a nimble, twin-engine, multi-purpose helicopter manufactured by AgustaWestland, now part of Leonardo. Initially conceptualized in the late 1960s as a single-engine commercial helicopter, the A109 underwent redesign to meet the growing demand for a twin-engine configuration, incorporating twin Allison 250-C14 powerplants. Introduced in 1976, the A109 achieved considerable success across various utility roles, including military tasks, light transport, medevac, and search-and-rescue missions. It holds the distinction of being the first all-Italian helicopter to undergo mass production, with continuous production to date. A subsequent variant, the A109C, features an eight-seat configuration for civilian use and is powered by Allison Model 250-C20R-1 engines.

Red Box is delighted to present an extensive range of ground power and support equipment tailored for this aircraft, including tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, all meticulously suited to meet the specific requirements of the Leonardo A109C aircraft.

This offering includes the RBFLT25 electric tug, the RBPS50 continuous power unit, ideal for diagnostic work, pre-flight checks, or continuous powering of equipment during operations without draining the onboard aircraft batteries, and the RB50A for starting the aircraft, helping to avoid hot starts. Additionally, we provide a combination of start and continuous power in a single unit for the Leonardo A109C aircraft in our TC3000 range.
