Australia’s Burbank Group has ordered an AgustaWestland (Stand 7010) AW109 Power light twin helicopter. The Melbourne-based company has also taken an option for a GrandNew light twin helicopter.

The Italian airframer has sold almost 40 aircraft to Australia, including the AW119ke, the AW109 Power, the Grand/Grand New family and the AW139.  The burgeoning local helicopter market comprises corporate and VIP transport, emergency medical services (EMS) and offshore applications. 

Worldwide, AgustaWestland says it sold more helicopters in the commercial sector in 2010 than it did in 2009 and that the first quarter of 2011 has already proved fruitful, with important orders coming from Qatar and Portugal.
