First AgustaWestland Italian Corporate Pilot Conference Hailed a Success By Participants
The first AgustaWestland Italian Corporate Pilot Conference was held at the Companyâ€™s Cascina Costa facility in mid-January and was deemed a great success by those attending. The event was attended by over 50 corporate pilots, almost all of them flying AgustaWestland helicopter types, and provided an excellent forum for both the company and pilots to discuss and exchange views on operational, product and safety matters.
During the workshop-based conference, opened by Giuseppe Orsi, CEO, and Renzo Lunardi, Senior Vice President Commercial Business Unit, AgustaWestland presented the latest changes to its Commercial Business Unit and Customer Support organisationsâ€™ processes intended to further enhance the services and responsiveness to customers in the corporate sector. Other topics discussed during the Conference comprised performance and safety issues related to Catergory â€˜Aâ€™ operations, training, new technologies, product developments, regulatory issues and the latest customisation options. AgustaWestland is the world leader in the corporate helicopter market and plays a leading role in the Italian market as well. The two day Conference also involved other company sites in Italy including Vergiate where final assembly of the AW109 Power, Grand and AW139 helicopters is located and Sesto Calende the home of the AgustaWestland â€˜Training Academyâ€™.
