ROME, March 8 (Reuters) – Leonardo (LDOF.MI) has signed preliminary sales contracts for more than 50 of its new AW09 helicopters, the Italian defence company said, without providing a value for the orders.

Leonardo also said it had agreed to work with Metro Aviation, one of the largest private helicopter emergency medical service companies in the United States, as part of the development of the AW09.

The agreements were announced at the Heli-Expo 2023 trade fair in Atlanta, Georgia.

The AW09 is a single-engine helicopter that can carry up to eight passengers. It has been developed by Kopter Group, a Swiss company acquired by Leonardo in 2020.
