Italian operator says ciao to ACH160
As well as its range of interiors, the ACH160 offers a smooth and quiet ride thanks to its Helionix digital avionics system. It has been ordered by customers in eight countries across the Americas Europe and Asia.
The ACH160 has extended its presence into a new continent.

Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) has won an order for its latest ACH160 helicopter, just days after the type was certified.

The order, placed by an experienced Italian operator for use on private and corporate flights mainly inside Italy, means the ACH160 has been ordered by customers in eight countries across North America, Latin America, Europe, China and southeast Asia. The latest client is an existing ACH twin-engined helicopter operator, and specified a customised interior for six passengers.

The ACH160 is the business aviation version of the H160 helicopter, which was certified by EASA on 1 July, ready for deliveries to private and business customers commencing later this year. It is the latest member of the ACH family. As well as its range of interiors, the ACH160 offers a smooth and quiet ride thanks to its Helionix digital avionics system. Head of ACH Frederic Lemos says: “This new order from a highly knowledgeable ACH customer is yet more evidence of the strong welcome being received by the ACH160 in this demanding sector, even at a notably challenging time for the helicopter market.”

The full ACH helicopter range consists of the ACH125, ACH130, ACH135, ACH145, ACH160 and ACH175 variants of Airbus Helicopters' family of light and medium models. A range of premium-design aircraft completions, including bespoke designs, is available for all models.
