ITALY (BNS): The Egyptian Air Force has received AW139 aircraft AgustaWestland North America, Inc. via its contract with US Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) Contracting Center for Foreign Military Sales.

AgustaWestland configured the AW139s for the Egyptian Air Force's search and rescue missions.

"The team fulfilled our commitment to exceed our customer's expectations and we are confident that the AW139 will be an enormous asset for the Egyptian Air Force's helicopter fleet," R. Scott Rettig, chief executive officer of AgustaWestland North America, was quoted as saying in a statement.

The AW139 features a low acoustic signature, integrated mission avionics and is available with a full ice protection system, allowing aircrews to accomplish missions in the most demanding, all-weather conditions.
