New Order to Bring AW189 to South America
An AW189 by North Pole Investments of Panama would mark the super-medium twin’s entry in the South American market. AgustaWestland said North Pole, which also ordered an AW139, plans for both aircraft to be operated by Helistar de Aviacion of Colombia for offshore oil and gas support. The aircraft are slated for delivery by early 2016, the manufacturer said. Helistar last year ordered two AW139s; it operates more than 30 helicopters.
