Leonardo-Finmeccanica’s range of helicopters show continued success in the Japanese market with the selection of two brand new AgustaWestland AW109 Trekkers for the Tokyo Metropolitan Police law-enforcement fleet.

The two helicopters are scheduled to be delivered in 2017, making this customer the first Asian law enforcement operator of the type. Civil certification of the AW109 Trekker is expected by the end of this year.

 Through its Regional Business Headquarters, opened in Tokyo in 2008, Leonardo Helicopters has been supporting its growing business in Japan. Over 150 helicopters of various types have been sold in Japan to date for a wide range of commercial and government roles. More than 80 AW109 series helicopters are in service or on order in Japan, with more than 40 for law enforcement applications including the AW109, GrandNew, AW139 and AW101 models.
