Rotortec's single-engine AW119Kx has many of the attributes usually associated with twin-engine models.

Rotortec, a premium passenger service provider in Chile, has recently taken delivery of a KW119Kx from Leonardo. The helicopter will be used for tourism and sightseeing flights over Santiago, the region's Andes mountains, volcanoes and ski resorts among other routes that provide views of natural beauty and urban splendour.

Rotortec's AW119Kx is outfitted with a high altitude kit that allows it to climb safely to 24,000 ft. The company also operates one AW119Ke.

The AW119Kx single engine helicopter has high power margins and offers many redundancies most frequently found in twin engine models, including dual electrical and hydraulics systems. Featuring a Pratt & Whitney PT-6 engine, the AW119Kx offers excellent flying qualities, including a Garmin G1000H glass cockpit design that enhances situational awareness and reduces pilot workload. The spacious cabin seats up to six passengers and the aircraft also has a large separate baggage compartment.

The AW119 is in service in over 40 countries and has been selected by many private operators and also high profile military, government and parapublic customers, including the Portuguese Air Force, New York City Department of Environmental Protection Police and many others across Europe, Asia and Latin America. All variants of the AW119 are manufactured in Philadelphia, USA.
