Leonardo has renewed its distributorship agreement in the UK and Ireland with its partner Sloane Helicopters, the company announced on 22 May.

The agreement covers the AW109 GrandNew, AW109 Trekker and AW169 types over the period 2019-2021.

Under the distributorship agreement, Sloane foresees the purchase of at least eight new helicopters by 2021, with a contract for an AW109 GrandNew and an AW109 Trekker in VIP configuration signed at EBACE. 

Leonardo’s partnership with Sloane has led to the sale of nearly 80 aircraft to date. The new AW109 Trekker has more recently found success with three aircraft ordered in the region to date.

The AW109 GrandNew and the AW109 Trekker share the same engines, while featuring different digital core avionics and with retractable landing gear/skids respectively.
