Tiltrotor – The Future

Aerogulf Services will be the first operator in the region and one of the first in the world to operate the AW609 Tiltrotor.

The Tiltrotor is the result of a number of high-technology developments that have allowed the manufacturer to combine the vertical take-off and landing capabilities of a helicopter with the high-speed capability and efficiencies of a conventional airplane.

The AW609 will travel at twice the speed of most conventional helicopters and have twice the range, with a maximum cruising speed of 275 knots (509 km/h) and 700+nm range (possibly achieving 1,000nm with long-range tanks installed).
