Featuring high performance, using state-of-the art technologies, and adhering to the latest international regulatory requirements (EASA / FAA Part 29, JAR OPS 3 / EU-OPS) the AW189 is unmatched in its ability to meet the stringent operational and safety needs of the Oil and Gas industry.

Large, bright internal space, modular design and low internal noise and vibration allow maximum flexibility and superior passenger comfort. All these features combined make the AW189 the medium category helicopter of choice for the most demanding operations worldwide. Its reduced overall dimensions make it suitable for operation on an extensive number of Offshore helidecks.

All Weather Day and Night, VFR / IFR certified, the AW189 will operate seamlessly in the harsh conditions prevalent in Offshore operations. The spacious cabin is configured with 16 seats as standard. Seating options include a high density 18 seat layout or an ultra long range 12 seat configuration. High cruising speed and a very high payload due to a highly efficient rotor system, together with superior O.E.I capability, make the AW189 ideally suited to the safest Offshore operations with the lowest operational costs.

Next Generation avionics expands further operational capabilities, contributing to safety by enhancing situational awareness and reducing crew workload.

Although optimised for Offshore missions, the AW189 can perform a variety of public utility roles. AgustaWestland leverages years of close co-operation with customers to bring unparalleled flexibility to the market in the AW189. With a configuration suited to global operations, the helicopter’s design and spacious cabin provides for endless choice in configuration.

Cabin layout options include a range in seat density up to 18 seats, and Medevac & SAR configurations. Modular fuel systems, quick to fit and remove, ensure the optimum mission specific trade off between passengers and distance can be achieved.

Large sliding doors lend the AW189 to both superior egress for passengers and the efficient loading of cargo pallets. Hook load capacity (2722 kg / 6000 lb) extends the mission flexibility of the AW189 to roles such as fire-fighting and external cargo lift.
