Leonardo will deliver two new helicopters to Chilean private operators by early 2019, the company announced on 30 March.

An AW119Kx single engine helicopter will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2018 for VIP transport; while an AW109 Trekker light twin helicopter in utility configuration will be delivered in the first quarter of 2019.

The AW109 Trekker maintains the AW109 Grand airframe and large cabin while offering greater payload. The AW119Kx has a large cabin able to accommodate up to six passengers and redundancy of all critical systems for advanced safety.

The deliveries will add to Leonardo's fleet of more than 20 aircraft operating in Chile.
