Leonardo has delivered an AW139 helicopter to Italy’s Guardia di Finanza, marking the 1000th delivery of the type worldwide.

In total, more than 1,100 units have been ordered from more than 280 customers in over 70 countries. The aircraft is widely deployed across a range of sectors, including public utility, search and rescue, air ambulance, law enforcement, firefighting, disaster relief, offshore transport, VIP and corporate transport.

Leonardo's CEO, Alessandro Profumo, said: ‘What we celebrate today is much more than the success of a product or of a company. It is the global affirmation of an asset of our entire country. Thanks to the commitment, knowledge and professional skills present at Leonardo and to our products, like the AW139, our host of technologies and history of flight innovation – these all form important pillars of our industrial capabilities.

‘The AW139 is a striking example of the role that Leonardo plays and intends to continue to have in the world. All our values are reflected in the AW139: continuous innovation, internationalisation, proximity to the market and to the customer, and the enhancement of human resources.’
