AgustaWestland’s new AW609 tiltrotor aircraft is still at least two years away from entering service, but we now have a better idea of just how fast this transformer for civilians is going to be. On a “point-to-point” journey from Yeovil, UK to Cascina Costa, Italy, the AW609 traversed the 721 mile route in 2 hours 18 minutes.
