The AW189 is a Super Medium twin-engine helicopter developed by the helicopter division of the Italian aerospace conglomerate Leonardo.

Developed from the AW139 for the 8-metric tonnes, long-range,19 passenger segment, it proved popular with the offshore oil & gas market where the AW189 is able to economically replace low performance older generation heavier helicopters.

Launched in 2011, the AW189 completed its first flight on December 21, 2011, prior to entering service in 2015 with launch customer Bristow for operation in the North Sea.

Powered by either a dual Safran FADEC controlled Aneto-1K Turboshafts installation or a dual General Electric FADEC controlled CT7-2E1 Turboshafts installation. the aw189 features an  Industry-leading 50 minutes ‘dry-run’ capable main gearbox and a 60KW Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) from SAFRAN.

The AW189 advanced flight deck uses Collins advanced avionics with four 13-inch color active-matrix liquid crystal displays (AMLCD) and  4-axis dual-duplex digital automatic flight control system. Offering enhanced capabilities to support long-range, all-weather, day and night, deep water missions typical of the offshore operations.
