Jakarta will launch an investigation into the delivery of a Leonardo Helicopters AgustaWestland AW101 VIP helicopter, part of a deal that was apparently cancelled.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that the Indonesian air force ordered three AW101’s in a VIP configuration on 24 November 2015.

So far, only one of the helicopters, MSN 50248, is shown as having being delivered. This aircraft had previously been destined for the Indian Air Force as part of a 12 aircraft deal, but this was scuppered in 2014 by allegations of corruption around the Indian procurement. It was delivered to the Indonesian air force on 15 January 2017.

The Indonesian delivery supposedly took place despite a presidential decision in late 2015 to cancel the requirement.

Indonesian president Joko Widowo reportedly favours the Airbus Helicopters H225, for which Indonesian Aerospace (IAe) produces the upper and lower fuselage. IAe also conducts MRO work for Airbus Helicopters rotorcraft operated in the country.

The precise whereabouts of 50248 are unclear. State news agency Antara says that the aircraft has been delivered to Halim air base outside of Jakarta, although FlightGlobal was unable to confirm this.
