Airbus announces orders for ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter


The ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter has won orders across Latin America, North America and Asia Pacific since its launch in January 2020. The interior was featured in the April 2020 edition of Business Jet Interiors International (click here to read).

The ACH130 Aston Martin Edition is a special version of the ACH130 featuring a range of interior and exterior designs created by Aston Martin to delight helicopter owners who appreciate the thrill of piloting and the pleasure of driving luxury sports cars.

The first example in Asia Pacific has been ordered by an existing Airbus customer in New Zealand. It will be used privately as well as on VIP charter operations. In Latin America the helicopter has just entered service with a VIP customer in Guatemala. Most recently a private customer in Canada ordered the third example, which will be completed in the UK, where Airbus manages and engineers this edition, and finally delivered from the Airbus Customer Centre in Fort Erie, Canada.

The aeronautical designers at Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) and the automotive designers at Aston Martin worked closely together for over a year, marrying ACH’s key values of excellence, quality and service with Aston Martin’s commitment to beauty, handcrafting and automotive art, with the aim of bringing a new level of aesthetics and rigorous attention to detail to the single-engine helicopter market.

“We are delighted with the market reaction to this superb new helicopter,” said Frédéric Lemos, head of ACH. “These orders across the world clearly demonstrate the excitement generated by our collaboration with Aston Martin.”
