Leonardo Helicopters is closing in on a final contract with the United Arab Emirates for three search and rescue-roled AW609 tiltrotors.

Da un più ampio articolo apparso sul sito di AW&ST .....
For a number of long-running rotary-wing projects, 2018 will be an important year.
Perhaps the most iconic of these will be Leonardo’s AW609 commercial tiltrotor, which has overcome delays and the fatal loss of the second prototype.
Leonardo believes it can finally close the tiltrotor’s development chapter and achieve FAA Powered Lift certification by the end of 2018.
Certification of the aircraft’s powerplant, Pratt & Whitney Canada’s 2,000-shp PT6C-67A, was achieved in September.
The fourth prototype, AC4, fitted out in a preproduction standard that will feature the full Rockwell Collins Fusion avionics suite planned for production aircraft, was planned to be rolled out before the end of 2017.

Il punto sulla situazione .....
Leonardo Helicopters is checking off key milestones on its AW609 civil tiltrotor program, and the aircraft remains on pace for entry into service in 2019, the company reported in its latest update.
“Our collaboration with [the International Civil Aviation Organization] and the FAA, coupled with the increasing momentum in flight test and developmental operations, puts the company in the right position to ensure first AW609 deliveries after certification in late 2019 meet customer operational requirements,” said Bill Sunick, AW609 marketing manager for Leonardo.

Leonardo ..... ci prova .....
Leonardo Helicopters has begun early discussions with Italy regarding the possible acquisition of its AW169 and AW609 models.

In addition, Leonardo sees a possible role for the AW609 tiltrotor in the Italian inventory as a long-range search and rescue or maritime patrol asset.
"It is a matter of finding the proper role," says Garavaglia.
"There is not a firm requirement but there are discussions and exploration about how it could serve some of Italy's needs."

Leonardo Helicopters has selected twin GE Aviation CT7 engines to power the Next-Gen Civil Tiltrotor (NGCTR) technology demonstrator it is producing under the EU's Clean Sky 2 initiative.
Talks with GE on the latest application for the powerplant began in October 2018, says NGCTR programme manager Andrea Artioli.
