Some three and a half years after AgustaWestland announced the order for three VIP AW169s, the first of these has now been delivered to Linfox Holdings – who supplied the image we are using in this article.   This marks the seventh new AgustaWestland helicopter in under fifteen years.

Linfox is Australia’s largest privately owned logistics company that is rapidly expanding throughout Asia and New Zealand.  Today, the group employes more than 23,000 people in 10 countries working across five industry sectors: Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), Retail, Resources & Industrial, Australian Linehaul and Government & Defence.

The seven helicopters have been as follows – listing type, AW serial number and acquisition dates

  • AW119 Koala (14007) September 2000
  • A109E Power (11168) October 2003
  • AW109S Grand (22015) July 2006
  • AW109S Grand (22081) October 2008
  • AW109SP Grand New (22220) December 2010
  • AW109SP Grand New (22294) April 2013
  • AW169 (69009) January 2016

And as at the date of publication the last pair are registered currently to Linfox group company Fox Helicopters.
