The AW109S Grand, introduced in 2005, is a lightweight, twin-engine helicopter, manufactured by AgustaWestland, based on the A109E aircraft, now under Leonardo. The design of the helicopter was derived from the predecessing AW109 family, with the intentions to create a civilian variant of the previous model for utility purposes. The AW109S Grand was developed by lenghtening the fuselage and cabin of the AW109, as well as utilising a different type of rotor blade to aid performance. The powerplant for the AW109S Grand is two Pratt & Whitney PW207C engines. The AW109SP GrandNew was a derivative of the original model, offering more advanced avionics, and a lighter construction as a result of the carbon fibre structure, which was particularly important for the aircrafts utilised by the emergency medical services.
