Egypt Adds, Lagerfeld Designs AW139s
AgustaWestland North America has handed over an AW139 to the Egyptian Air Force. The agreement is part of a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract with the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command’s contracting center. AgustaWestland built the AW139 at its U.S. manufacturing facility in Philadelphia. In addition, German designer Karl Lagerfeld has partnered with AgustaWestland to develop VIP helicopter interiors and exteriors. The agreement initially covers the AW139 and could expand to include other AgustaWestland commercial variants.
