The AgustaWestland AW149 is a medium-lift military helicopter being developed by AgustaWestland. On 20 June 2011 AgustaWestland announced the AW189, a civilian development of the AW149, for service in 2013.

Design and development

The AW149 was unveiled at the 2006 Farnborough Air Show. Derived from the AW139, the AW149 has a larger fuselage and more powerful engines, resulting in a greater cargo volume and payload carrying ability.

The first prototype made its first flight 13 November 2009 form AgustaWestland's Vergiate manufacturing facility in northern Italy.

A version called the TUHP149, along with a Turkish version of the S-70i Black Hawk called the T-70, was a candidate for the Turkish Utility Helicopter Programme (TUHP). The program covered an initial batch of 109 helicopters worth $4 billion, with a prospect for further orders in subsequent batches that may eventually top 300.
