Agusta delivered a new A109 Power to the national police of Slovenia. The helicopter, which will be based at Brnik Airport near capital Ljubljana, is valued at $7.2 million. According to Agusta, the 160-knot speed of the new helicopter (the fifth acquisition of the Slovene police air fleet) will significantly cut the air unit’s intervention time.
The Slovenia Power has an external electrical hoist, searchlight, FLIR camera and tactical radios for police and rescue missions, and it has a secondary EMS role. The A109 Power is certified for single-pilot IFR operation and Cat A performance at mtow.
