AgustaWestland’s fourth AW169 prototype completed its maiden flight Thursday at the manufacturer’s plant in Vergiate, Italy.

The fourth prototype cleared all tests for general handling and basic systems performance, joining three other testbeds that took flight in May, July and November 2012.

AgustaWestland says the AW169 is on schedule for civil certification in 2014.
