The Light AW109 is one of the most popular offerings from the helicopter division of the Italian aerospace conglomerate Leonardo. This twin-engine helicopter has always been especially appreciated in the VIP/Corporate market where over 50% of the fleet is still serving today.

The original version of the AW109 first flew on August 4, 1971, prior to entering service in 1976. The model went since through a long series of avionics and engine enhancements.     

The AW109 Trekker is the latest updated version, based on the AW109 Grand lengthened cabin and featuring a pair of FADEC equipped Pratt & Whitney Canada PW207C engines together with an enhanced avionics configuration from Genesys Aerospace allowing for single-pilot IFR. The AW109 Trekker fixed landing skids make it particularly suitable for landing on yachts.
