Farnborough Display Includes AW189 in SAR-H Configuration
AgustaWestland displayed its AW189 at the Farnborough International Airshow, the first time the variant appeared in a search and rescue (SAR) configuration. The helicopter is in the running for the UK’s SAR-H requirement and certification for the AW189 is expected in 2013. If selected, AgustaWestland’s Yeovil facility would assemble all SAR-outfitted AW189s.
