The AW119 KOALA is the new “widebody” one-turbine motor helicopter developed by Agusta able to guarantee safety, operating capacities and high performance at a competitive price.
Though being a light one-turbine model (Pratt & Whitney PT6-37 1,000-horsepower turbine), it incorporates the sophisticated technologies applied in the biggest two-turbine machines.
It can transport up to 7 passengers or over 1,300 Kg of useful load offering a spacious and comfortable cabin, 30% wider than any other existing one-turbine helicopter.
The absence of internal structures allows quick and easy changes of configuration so as to adapt it to different missions.
The rescue version allows up to two stretchers with two medical assistants to be loaded without any intrusion into the cockpit.
