Customers on three continents have signed firm contracts for the ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter.

The helicopter will enter service in Latin America, North America, and the Asia Pacific over the coming months. Launched in January, this ACH130 features 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 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 Aston Martin Edition has just entered service with an undisclosed VIP customer in Guatemala.

Most recently another private customer in Canada has ordered the third example, which will be completed by skilled craftsmen in the UK, where Airbus manages and engineers this edition. ACH designers and the automotive designers worked closely for over a year, marrying ACH’s key values of excellence, quality, and service with Aston Martin’s commitment to beauty and handcrafting to bring a new level of aesthetics to the single-engine helicopter market.

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