Gualter Helicopters named as Brazilian Leonardo dealer
Acquired three years ago by Leonardo, Kopter's AW09 complements Leonardo's product range in the long light single engine helicopter segment, introducing an all-new design aircraft to sustain long-term positioning.
CEO Gualter Pizzi has 35 years of experience selling helicopters across Brazil and has sold over 700 in the country.

Leonardo has appointed Gualter Helicopters (Aero Service Representação) as distributor in Brazil for its latest generation single-turbine helicopter, the AW09.

At Heli-Expo 2023, held in Atlanta, Georgia in March, Leonardo had announced preliminary sales contracts for over 50 AW09s with various customers, and these included 20 units for Gualter Helicopters. The company, based in the Sao Paolo area, will distribute the AW09 in Brazil, where customers have expressed a strong interest in acquiring the new helicopter.

Both sides will greatly benefit from this partnership. CEO Gualter Pizzi has 35 years of experience selling helicopters across Brazil and has sold over 700 in the country.

Acquired three years ago by Leonardo, Kopter's AW09 complements Leonardo's product range in the long light single engine helicopter segment, introducing an all-new design aircraft to sustain a long-term competitive positioning in this weight category.
