Polish door and fence company selects GrandNew
Wisniowski, a Polish manufacturer of garage and industrial doors, gates and fences, is to acquire an AgustaWestland GrandNew helicopter in five-seat vvip transport configuration.

Wisniowski, a Polish manufacturer of garage and industrial doors, gates and fences, is to acquire an AgustaWestland GrandNew helicopter in five-seat vvip transport configuration. The company is headquartered in Wieloglowy and has sales offices and representatives throughout Europe and western Russia.

The helicopter will be delivered later this year and represents the first sale of the GrandNew light twin in Poland. There are currently no AgustaWestland helicopters on the Polish register, although the company's PZL-Swidnik subsidiary is based there, and is responsible for the manufacture of several GrandNew fuselages.

The GrandNew is the latest variant of the Grand, with a new cockpit to provide pilots with high levels of situational awareness and flight management capabilities, including the localiser performance with vertical guidance approach operations.

Four-axis digital autopilot, synthetic vision EFIS with FMS, flight recording embedded functions all help to increase mission capability and safety, says the manufacturer.
