Hourly operating costs

Hi Can anyone help me with a rough figure for the hourly operating costs of a AW169 in Sweden or UK. Looking in particular at EMS operations. Thanks very much

Leonardo will give you a figure that will be "rough enough".

Vanilla AW169 oil and gas rate is just over $1000 USD per hour including both engines and the AF. AF cover under FCP is around $650 per hour with the rest split between the 2 engines. Expect to pay a bit more than $1000 with less flying hours to smear the calendar items over. I'd expect closer to $1120 range all inclusive. This does not include any Honeywell packages.

Also note that the EMS interior will likely not be covered so repairs to these on condition items will be at risk/ cost to you (or covered by insurance).

Not sure about the 169 specifically, but I think Leonardos figures for the 119 might as well be determined with a random number generator, so I'd take anything they claim with a big grain of salt, and don't forget to add the cost of that salt to the figure
