Italy-based Elitaliana has singed a preliminary agreement for the purchase of two HEMS-configured AgustaWestland AW109 Trekker helicopters, with delivery scheduled to begin in 2016. The new rotorcraft are expected to aid in Elitaliana’s expansion to new bases in Italy and abroad. In addition to this latest contract, Elitaliana has also purchased six AW169s. All rotorcraft will be used for tasks including passenger and utility transport, EMS, and search and rescue.
