  2. 2. ENTER THE AW189 Belonging to the AgustaWestland Family of products, the AW189 is designed in answer to the growing market demand for a versatile, affordable, multirole helicopter. This 8-tonne class, twin engine helicopter type is optimised for the long range, deep water missions typical of current and evolving Offshore operations. Alongside the AW139 - sharing its modern design concept, the AW189 complements the wide range of AgustaWestland helicopters serving OGP. Featuring high performance, using state-of-the art technologies, and adhering to the latest international regulatory requirements (EASA / FAA Part 29, JAR OPS 3 / EU-OPS) the AW189 is unmatched in its ability to meet the stringent operational and safety needs of the Oil and Gas industry. LEADING FEATURES Certification category Weight category Fuel tanks SAR Cat. A, PC1 / PC2e All Weather Day and Night, VFR / IFR certified, the AW189 will operate seamlessly in the harsh conditions prevalent in Offshore operations. The spacious cabin is configured with 16 seats as standard. Seating options include a high density 18 seat layout or an ultra long range 12 seat configuration. High cruising speed and a very high payload due to a highly efficient rotor system, together with superior O.E.I capability, make the AW189 ideally suited to the safest Offshore operations with the lowest operational costs. Next Generation avionics expands further operational capabilities, contributing to safety by enhancing situational awareness and reducing crew workload. Long range SAR missions benefit from the superior combination of range and payload available on the AW189. The spacious unobstructed cabin provides ample room to accommodate rescue crew, longitudinal and transversal stretchers and mission consoles. 145 - 150 kts / 267 km/h – 278 km/h Accommodation 1 or 2 Pilots + 16/18 passengers Cabin dimensions Width 2.4 m / 7 ft 10 in Height 1.4 m / 4 ft 07 in Length 3.4 m / 11 ft 02 in Main cabin volume 11.2 m3 / 395.5 ft3 Baggage volume 1 Comprehensive weight/temperature envelope for world-wide operations Cruise speed Fly Further Offshore Basic Fuel Tank System Usable capacity: 2,068 litres / 546 USGal, corresponding to 1,654 kg / 3,646 lb (*) Modular, easily removable Auxiliary Fuel Tanks 2.4 m3 / 84,7 ft3 17.60 m / 57 ft 09 in Landing gear OFFSHORE / CREW CHANGE Two turboshaft General Electric, GE CT7-2E1 with FADEC and built-in particle separator.

The generous cabin space, excellent accessibility and flexibility in seating configuration together with quickly removable options such as a fast rope system and cargo hook makes the AW189 particularly suited to a variety of special forces and utility operations. • Pressure refuelling • Weather Radar Further optional equipment includes: Full Ice Protection System or Limited Ice Protection System for operations in icing conditions, single or dual hoist, ADS-B out, nose mounted FLIRs and a cargo hook. PASSENGER / EXECUTIVE TRANSPORT A combination of speed and low internal vibration and noise deliver exceptional passenger comfort. The use of an Auxiliary Power Unit on the ground to provide air conditioning ensures passengers remain comfortable whatever the outside temperature without the need to engage rotors. The finest interiors are available to complete the cabin in the most luxurious manner suited to the VVIP passenger. Cabin layout options include a range in seat density up to 18 seats, and Medevac & SAR configurations. Modular fuel systems, quick to fit and remove, ensure the optimum mission specific trade off between passengers and distance can be achieved. AW189: SUPERIOR ECONOMICS & SUPPORT 4 • HUMS and Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) Although optimised for Offshore missions, the AW189 can perform a variety of public utility roles. AgustaWestland leverages years of close co-operation with customers to bring unparalleled flexibility to the market in the AW189. With a configuration suited to global operations, the helicopter’s design and spacious cabin provides for endless choice in configuration. Large sliding doors lend the AW189 to both superior egress for passengers and the efficient loading of cargo pallets. Hook load capacity (2722 kg / 6000 lb) extends the mission flexibility of the AW189 to roles such as fire-fighting and external cargo lift. • External life rafts 2 x 21 with emergency beacon JTSO 126 • ADELT JTSO 126 DESIGN FLEXIBILITY AW189 MISSION CAPABILITY SAFETY BY DESIGN Radius of Action, IFR mission: Return fuel, 10% contingency, 30 minute reserves Passengers at 100 kg / 220 lb each The AW189 meets and exceeds the airworthiness requirements of the most recent EASA / FAA amendments in the transport category (Part 29) and is qualified to fulfil the most stringent guidelines of the major oil & gas companies. 200nm 140nm 110nm 18 passengers 16 passengers 12 passengers PERFORMANCE The AW189 is powered with two GE CT7-2E1 engines delivering superior performance in speed and hover. The helicopter aerodynamic shape and innovative rotor blade design result in low fuel consumption which contributes to an outstanding range capability. These factors enable the AW189 to achieve optimum operator combination of high payload and reduced fuel burn. In the event of an emergency landing or ditching, seats are configured to be aligned to large push-out windows maximising egress speed. Floatation aids contribute to stability up to Sea State 6, while life rafts are positioned for access directly from the helicopter cabin. High safety is achieved on the AW189 through a series of design features. Structural crashworthiness has been a priority in the design of the airframe, fuel system and seats. A reinforced windscreen and optimum positioning of critical controls mitigates the consequences of a birdstrike. A limited number of components are subject to overhaul and retirement. Maintenance operations have been optimised to reduce downtime for flight intensive Offshore schedules. The AW189 will benefit from the extensive and expanding AgustaWestland worldwide support network already serving the Offshore industry. Relative Direct Operating Cost - Seat / Nautical Mile Conklin & de Decker 2011 data +12% The helicopter main gearbox benefits from a 50 min ‘dry-run’ capability and Cat. A, PC1 / PC2e performance allow take offs and landings with high payloads and superior safety margins in the challenging world-wide locations associated with Offshore operations. Cockpit design incorporating the latest in advanced situational awareness technologies (HTAWS, TCAS II) reduces crew workload. A high main rotor clearance allows a safe environment for ground operations and maintenance crew. The availability of advanced diagnostic tools to continuously monitor systems health results furthers safety and reduces time on the ground. The AW189 has been designed to provide unique operational capability combined with very competitive economics. Reduced ownership and operating costs are a primary design target for the AW189. A low cost per seat / mile together with a long range capability make this helicopter an ideal alternative to more expensive 19-seat helicopters in Offshore operations. No more than 2 people per emergency exit 19 Pax aircraft 1 Exceptional external visibility and the deployment of the latest in avionics technology make the AW189 the pilot’s choice. The open architecture avionics suite includes full digital glass cockpit with four 8” x 10” displays (AMLCD), a 4-axis dual-duplex digital automatic flight control system (DAFCS) and dual Flight Management System (FMS). All contribute to minimising pilot workload during VFR / IFR flight. Single pilot IFR certification is a design objective. The avionics suite is suitable for the NextGen satellite-based IFR navigation (RNAV / RNP, vertical navigation and precision approaches) and advanced communication and surveillance requirements (ADS-B). The AW189 sets new standards in situational awareness in low visibility flying conditions. The optional Synthetic Vision System emulates the surrounding topography to enhance terrain and obstacle avoidance while the optional Enhanced Vision System sees through darkness, smoke, dusk and light fog further improving operational safety. The integrated AW189 avionics system performs Point-InSpace (PINS) and Offshore approach procedures.
