Leonardo, listed on the Milan Stock Exchange (LDO), employs over 45,000 people and has an industrial and commercial presence in over 20 countries.

Leonardo’s success is based on technological excellence, investing ca. 13% of its 2017 revenues in Research and Development. Following an open innovation approach, Leonardo has established important collaboration with universities, research centres, customers, partner companies, suppliers and start-ups across the globe.

 

 

Activities and Products

 

Helicopters

 

The Helicopter Division is active in the design, development, production, customer support and marketing of Leonardo's extensive range of AgustaWestland products: modern helicopters and tiltrotor for civil, parapublic and defence applications.

The Division manages the entire helicopter development and production cycle. The plants, located in Italy, the UK, Poland and the U.S., are fully integrated and are organised around "centres of excellence" that support the final assembly lines. The final assembly lines are in Vergiate and Tessera (Italy), Yeovil (UK), Swidnik (Poland) and Philadelphia (U.S.).

Current production covers all the main helicopter weight categories, from the 1.8 tonne single-engine to the 16 tonne three-engine.

All the helicopters are dual use platforms except some specific military platforms: AW159, AW101, AW129 and NH90. The AW139, AW169 and AW189 models are part of a family of new generation helicopters, all featuring the same design philosophy and the same certification and safety standards. The family’s models also share many component parts and approach to maintenance and training. This translates into significant advantages in terms of operational efficiency and a reduction in through-life costs for the users.

 

The Helicopter Division considers innovation a key driver for growth and is committed to the study and introduction into the market of state-of-the-art technologies and platforms, including the AW609 tiltrotor, which combines the advantages of the fixed-wing aircraft's speed/range/altitude with the helicopter's capability to vertically take off/land and hover into one machine. Innovative solutions include, remotely controlled/optionally piloted aircraft such as the AWHERO and the SW-4 Solo, in the development of Rotary Wing Unmanned Air Vehicles (RUAV) and Optionally Piloted Helicopters (OPH), which provide a great level of operational flexibility. The Division’s investment in the research, development and supply of a wide range of advanced technologies contributes to improving its helicopters’ performance and safety, and reducing operating costs and environmental impact.

 

The Helicopter Division considers customer satisfaction to be of great importance, and thanks to its service centre network it offers an excellent level of support for both maintenance and training. The service centres supply spare parts, carry out repairs and overhauls throughout the product lifecycle, around the world, 24 hours a day.

The Helicopter Division also includes the operations of Polish subsidiary PZL-Swidnik, acquired in 2010.

 

Aircraft

 

The Aircraft Division is engaged in the design, development and production of trainer aircraft, military aircraft, aircraft for special missions, unmanned systems and nacelles. The Division is also active in logistic support, maintenance technicians and crew training for the above-mentioned products.

In the training sector, the Aircraft Division offers a range of aircraft that cover the entire pilot training syllabus, basic-advanced training on the new M-345 and into the advanced/lead-in fighter training phase with the M-346, now also available in the multi role version (M-346FA). It also offers a fully integrated Ground Based Training System (GBTS) designed to allow for efficient and effective training to military pilots and ground crew that includes state-of-the-art Live Virtual simulation.

In the field of military aircraft, the Division produces advanced aircraft, leader in their class, such as the tactical airlifter C-27J, with its special mission MC-27J variants including C3-ISR, Fire Support and MP/SAR; the ATR 72 MP (Maritime Patrol) and the ATR 72 ASW (Anti-Submarine Warfare) twin turboprop.

In the regional transport aircraft segment, ATR (50% Leonardo and 50% Airbus) is the most successful in the global market for twin-engine turboprop aircraft, with over 1,500 aircraft sold and more than 200 operators in nearly 100 countries. The latest version in production, known as the -600 series, features digital avionics, especially comfortable interiors, and reduced operational costs. The aircraft is available in the 50-seat version (ATR 42) and 70+ seat version (ATR 72).

International collaborative programmes include the Eurofighter Typhoon and , the nEUROn - the European full-scale technological demonstrator for an Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV) - and the U.S. F-35 Lightning II programme.

In the UAS sector, the Division has implemented technology demonstrators, such as the Sky-X and Sky-Y that have been used as platforms for both national and European advanced research programmes and that helped to build experience that has allowed the Division to play an important role in the new generation European MALE RPAS (Remote Piloted Aircraft System) programme.

 

Aerostructures

 

The Aerostructure Division, by virtue of its experience in the processing of advanced materials, plays a leading role in major U.S. and European civil aviation programmes. The Aerostructure Division designs, builds, tests and integrates structures and components for the major civil aircraft programmes in Europe and in the U.S. The range of products includes several types in the Boeing, Airbus, and ATR portfolios.

The Division provides Boeing with the supplying of advanced composite aerostructures for the 787 Dreamliner, 767 and 777. In particular, for the twin-engine Boeing 787 programme the Division contributes a significant part of the design and technology through the building of two sections of the fuselage and the horizontal stabilizer, which together total 14% of the aircraft’s structure.

Within the collaboration with Airbus, spanning more than 30 years, one of the most important programmes is the A380, where the Division plays a central role through the production of a significant part of the middle section of the fuselage. The Division also designed and builds the wing stringers of the A320 and the fuselage front section of the A321.

For the ATR family, the Division builds and equips all fuselages, complete with tail surfaces, for the 70-seat ATR 72 and the 50-seat ATR 42, utilising the highest amount of advanced materials among regional aircraft.
