CERNOBBIO, Sept 6 Finmeccanica SIFI.MI said on
Sunday that its helicopter unit AgustaWestland should sell about
500 of the new BA609 Tiltrotor aircraft it is making with
Textron's (TXT.N) Bell for 20 million euros each from 2013.
Italy could kick off orders by buying between 40 and 50 for
the police, Finmeccanica Chief Executive Pierfrancesco
Guarguaglini said in the northern town of Cernobbio, where he
hosted a demonstration of the aircraft, which land like a
helicopter but can reach airplane speeds.
