AgustaWestland will build AW119 helicopters in India under a joint venture with Tata Sons. The two parties on Feb. 12 announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding to that effect. The JV will be responsible for AW119 final assembly, completion, and delivery to customers worldwide. AgustaWestland will retain responsibility for worldwide marketing and sales. The first aircraft is scheduled to be delivered from a new facility in 2011, with production forecast to rise to 30 aircraft per year. "Establishing an AW119 final assembly line in India will allow us to meet the growing demand in the world market for a modern single-engine helicopter and to further expand our presence in India, where we see strong future business opportunities," Giuseppe Orsi, AgustaWestland CEO, said after the MOU signing ceremony.
