Airbus has delivered a brand new ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter to an existing private customer who is already flying the H130 across the Philippine archipelago. This will also be the first ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter delivered in South East Asia.
The helicopter, one of the most distinctive sights in the skies, will immediately enter service in the Philippines, and will be primarily used for the owner’s personal and business transportation.
"It is such a delight to welcome the ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter to the Philippines, which is a further demonstration of the country’s development in the area of private and business aviation. We greatly appreciate the customer’s loyalty and continued endorsement of Airbus products and look forward to supporting its fleet in the country," said Charlie Simpson, Managing Director of Airbus Helicopters Philippines.
The ACH130 Aston Martin Edition is the product of a fruitful collaboration between the aeronautical designers at Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) and the automotive designers at Aston Martin, marrying ACH’s key values of excellence, quality and service with Aston Martin’s commitment to beauty, handcrafting and automotive art. It brings a new level of aesthetics and rigorous attention to detail to the single-engine helicopter market.
