The new "TH" version, standing for Training Helicopter, features distinctive capabilities and unique features differentiating it from the proven AW119Kx commercial helicopter while keeping certification advantages. Like the commercial AW119Kx, the TH-119 will be built at the company’s Philadelphia facility.

With high safety standards, the TH-119 maintains redundancies on several key systems for maximum safety, while featuring a dual-display Genesys Aerospace cockpit that gives flexibility to instruct from either seat and the option for VFR or IFR (IMC) operations. This makes the TH-119 the best single engine solution in the market for training in demanding weather and low visibility conditions. This digital integrated deck features four 6" x 8" display units providing primary flight display and multi-function information, 3D synthetic vision system with HITS navigation, as well as Helicopter Avoidance Warning System with terrain and obstacle database and Dual VHF/AM communication, VOR/ILS navigation, FPS/WAAS navigation and Aural Warning Generator.

Other features that set the aircraft apart from its competitors include a unique cabin configuration with an additional 180-degree adjustable trainer observation seat at the base of the instrument panel giving the occupant a full view of the cockpit. The TH-119 has also a full Night Vision Device (NVD) compatible cockpit and cabin with high-visibility cockpit doors and a low-profile instrument panel to ensure maximum visibility from the cockpit. Its re-enforced skids with replaceable skid shoes will support the multiple repetitions of essential touchdown training maneuvers.

Leonardo also fitted its TH-119 with cargo hook and hoist options supporting advanced training events and a five-fuel cell option that provides more than five hours of flight time with pressure refueling port allowing for less downtime to refuel as well as “hot” refueling while the engine is still running.

As the U.S. Navy faces increasing challenges to its current training helicopter platforms, the TH-119 helicopter is the best solution for the U.S. Navy at the right time.
