SkyTrac Systems is pleased to announce that it has obtained a supplemental type certificate (STC) for the installation of its automated flight following and satellite communications equipment on the AgustaWestland AB/AW139 helicopter. ‘The AW139 is a new generation medium twin-turbine helicopter setting new standards against which all medium twins are measured. Designed with inherent multi-role capability and flexibility of operation, the AW139 is capable of carrying up to 15 passengers at very high speed, in a most spacious and comfortable cabin. The AW139 can be used for a wide range of applications including executive/VIP transport, EMS/SAR, offshore OGP support, fire fighting, law enforcement, paramilitary and military roles.’

Steve Fuhr, VP and Director of Business Development at SkyTrac commented, “The AB/AW139 is a very complex aircraft and SkyTrac is very proud to be the first SatCom provider to obtain an STC on this airframe. We will continue to aggressively pursue other STCs that our clients require.”
