Stuttgart, December 5, 2016: In the 4th quarter of this year, DC Aviation expands its helicopter fleet by an AgustaWestland 139, which will be available for charter immediately. The AW139 is an intermediate twin-engine helicopter with outstanding performance capabilities and great productivity in challenging multi-role operations all over the world. The aircraft features cutting-edge technology, including a Honeywell Primus Epic fully integrated avionics system and 4-axis digital AFCS and it benefits from the best-in-class power reserve and an outstanding power-to-weight ratio, which provides Category A performance capabilities with no limitations in a wide range of operating conditions, including flying in an alpine environment.

Passengers benefit from the largest, most comfortable cabin in the intermediate twin-engine class.

Michael Kuhn, DC Aviation’s CEO: “We are happy to announce the expansion of our fleet by the
AW 139. This valuable addition is the direct result of our customers’ steadily growing interest and trust in our long-term experience in the management of private and commercial aircraft. We see this as an acknowledgement of our expertise and capability in providing our VIP customers with services of unsurpassed quality at maximum safety.”
