AgustaWestland has received an order from the Maryland State Police Aviation Command for three additional AW139s. The helicopters are part of an option from a 2010 order of six AW139s, the first of which is scheduled for handover in late 2012. The new aircraft will replace the current Maryland State Police fleet of Eurocopter AS365 Dauphins. AgustaWestland’s facility in Philadelphia is producing the first six AW139s.
