These aircraft will be used for emergency medical, search and rescue, law enforcement and homeland security missions. This order follows an initial contract for six AW139s placed in 2010.

The new AW139s for Maryland State Police feature the most spacious cabin available on the market with a custom designed Medevac interior. The AW139 cabin is 57% larger than the Dauphin helicopters which they are replacing.

The initial six Maryland State Police AW139s are in production at the AgustaWestland plant in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The first helicopters will be delivered to Maryland State Police in the second half of 2012, ahead of the currently contracted delivery schedule.

“The AgustaWestland team in Philadelphia is proudly building the next generation helicopters for the Maryland State Police. This order for three additional AW139 helicopters further demonstrates the customers’ commitment to our company and our product,” said Robert Brant, Vice President Sales and Marketing. “With significant cost savings over the lifecycle of the program, the new AW139 fleet is a great investment for the State of Maryland.”

Maryland State Police Aviation Command will benefit from the expanded capability afforded by the AW139 platform to more fully meet their emergency medical, search and rescue, law enforcement and homeland security missions. The AW139 is a state of the art helicopter successfully performing multi-mission roles throughout North America for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Los Angeles Fire Department, New Jersey State Police and other major aero medical and search and rescue operators in North America. The safety, economy, performance and capabilities of the AW139 make it the world’s best selling aircraft in its class.

AgustaWestland continues to expand its Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based production facility. A leading local employer, the Philadelphia facility is home to the worldwide production of the AW119Ke light single-engine platform, in addition to production of the medium-twin AW139 and final completions of the AW109 Power and GrandNew light-twin platforms.

With convenient roll-on/roll-off services and close proximity to its Philadelphia assembly plant, AgustaWestland routinely ships and receives assembled helicopters and helicopter components through the Port of Baltimore’s Dundalk Marine Terminal. AgustaWestland’s business through the Port of Baltimore generates a direct economic impact for the State of Maryland.
