The Leonardo AW609 AC4, fully representative of the final production configuration, is now in Dubai for the first official presentation of the multirole tiltrotor in the region over the forthcoming weeks.

The aircraft performed a one-of-a-kind ferry flight leaving Leonardo Helicopters’ Headquarter in Cascina Costa di Samarate, Italy, on September 10 and landing in Dubai on September 13, following stops in Southern Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East. The aircraft is supported by Aerogulf and hosted in their hangar at the Al Maktoum International Airport.

After being manufactured at the Leonardo plant in Philadephia, the fourth AW609 (AC4) was shipped to Italy at the beginning of the year to perform tests at the Cascina Costa plant.

Following the achievement of the final certification, the AC4 is currently involved in customer-dedicated demonstration activities for European operators and other potential users worldwide.
