The ACH130 Aston Martin edition helicopter, launched by Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) earlier this year, received orders from customers in three different continents. The helicopter will enter service in Latin America, North America and Asia Pacific in the coming months.
Released in January with a range of interior and exterior designs from Aston Martin, the helicopter, a stylish and exclusive version of the ACH130, will especially delight fans of luxury sports cars in the sky.
The first of this unusual model in Asia Pacific was ordered by an Airbus customer in New Zealand. The helicopter will be used in VIP charter operations as well as private flights. The helicopter ordered from Latin America will be used by an unnamed VIP customer in Guatemala. Finally, the helicopter, ordered by another unnamed customer in Canada, will be completed by experienced craftsmen in the UK and received from the Airbus Customer Center in Canada.
Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) aviation designers and Aston Martin automotive designers have worked together for more than a year, combining Aston Martin's passion for beauty, craftsmanship and automotive art with ACH's understanding of excellence, quality and superior service. Thus, a new perspective was brought to the single engine helicopter market.
ACH President Frédéric Lemos said, “We are very pleased with the market interest this excellent helicopter has received. "Orders from around the world clearly show the impact of our collaboration with Aston Martin."
