AgustaWestland announced today that it has obtained a Type2 Letter of Approval from EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) as a Navigation Database Supplier for helicopter Flight Management Systems (FMS). Under this EASA Certification,AgustaWestland is recognized as capable and allowed to generate and supply Navigation Database for the Flight Management Systems of its AW169 light intermediate and the AW189 super medium twin engine helicopter types.
AgustaWestland is the first rotor craft manufacturer to obtain this EASA Certification and the sole helicopter company capable of designing FMS and the Navigation Database. By doing so AgustaWestland is timely in adopting solutions recommended by EASA which are set to become mandatory in the coming years. AgustaWestland can provide tailored solutions for its customers supplying on-demand Navigation Data. By leveraging the common cockpit technology approach already available for the AW169 and AW189 models, this service is set to be possibly suitable and available for the AW101 in the future.
This latest achievement was possible thanks to the significant efforts devoted by the AgustaWestland Avionics Integration and Customer Support & Training Departments and builds upon the outstandingin-house avionics integration and development, customization capabilities,as well as the unique design philosophy and benefits of the Agustawestland Family concept
and ad hoc helicopter services.
