Three British Army AW159 Wildcat helicopters have been deployed to support the UK Ministry of Defence’s efforts in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Army Air Corps’ helicopters will be operating out of RNAS Yeovilton and will look to cover the South of England as required by the UK Government’s response to Covid-19 alongside Royal Air Force helicopters from RAF Odiham and RAF Benson.
The twin-engine multirole helicopter, which is built in Yeovil, Somerset, is a high-performance platform with state-of-the-art systems.
“Leonardo is proud to support the UK Ministry of Defence’s Covid-19 operations with its AW159 Wildcat helicopters as the Country comes together to tackle this pandemic,” said Norman Bone, Chairman and Managing Director of Leonardo UK.
