  • ANALYSIS: Dauphin's demise spurs X4 development at Airbus Helicopters

    News | 24 Feb 2015 10:21 | Dominic Perry

    ​On 3 March in Orlando, Airbus Helicopters will finally reveal the future of its medium-class rotorcraft. Work on the new model, known so far by its experimental designation of X4, has been under way since at least 2010, but there is still little clarity on what the helicopter looks like or what specifications it will boast.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Dauphins-demise-spurs-X4-development-at-Airbus-Helicopters-409059/

  • ANALYSIS: No loose talk but plenty to shout about at AgustaWestland

    News | 18 Nov 2014 11:51 | Dominic Perry

    AgustaWestland - like every Finmeccanica company - is a bit sensitive right now. Interviews with the company are only granted on the basis that quotes are attributed to the organisation rather than individuals. The stricture, driven by the changes at the top of Finmeccanica and part of the spring cleaning initiated by its new chief executive Mauro Moretti, has particular resonance for AgustaWestland. His appointment can be traced directly to the abrupt departure in February 2013 of Guiseppe Orsi as part of huge fall-out from the India corruption scandal during his time as AgustaWestland chief. It is an issue that has hung over the helicopter manufacturer for the past year or more, overshadowing any achievements. In fact, to illustrate the lasting legacy of the India deal, one only has to type "AgustaWestland" into the search bar of Google and one of the first suggestions to appear is "AgustaWestland India". It is, as the company describes it, "such a touchy subject".http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-No-loose-talk-but-plenty-to-shout-about-at-AgustaWestland-405502/
