Following the announcement in April 2011 of $37M in funding, and AgustaWestland’s press release the next month, we can now report that two AW139s have been delivered from the AgustaWestland North American (AWNA) factory in Pennsylvania to the Egyptian Air Force.  Painted in a white and red scheme, the two were last week cancelled from the FAA register as sold to Egypt, and we expect them to take up new military registrations there shortly.  AWNA were working with the US Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) Contracting Center for Foreign Military Sales to the Egyptian Air Force.

The aircraft are serial number 41282 (test flown as N487SM) and 41283 (N488SM).
