Chile is home to an expanding AgustaWestland GrandNew fleet, with two recent purchases from corporate operators. AgustaWestland

AgustaWestland has expanded its presence in Chile with Santiago-based Naviera Mistral’s purchase of a GrandNew light twin. The helicopter will be used for corporate transport and VIP operations. AgustaWestland expects to deliver the helicopter this year. The manufacturer is reporting a second GrandNew delivery to a private customer as well. To meet the needs of the growing Chilean market, AgustaWestland has launched an authorized service center with Aviasur to provide maintenance and support for the GrandNew and the Carabineros de Chile (Chilean National Police) fleet, including a VIP transport AW119Ke and four AW109 Powers.
