ACH130 Aston Martin ships to first North American customer
The ACH130 Aston Martin Edition is the product of a collaboration between Airbus Corporate Helicopters and luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin.
The Aston Martin Edition helicopter was completed at Airbus' facility in Oxford, UK, which manages this configuration.

Canadian entrepreneur Charles Tremblay has become the first customer in North America to take delivery of an ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter.

Tremblay, who owns a construction company in Gatineau, Quebec, and will personally fly the helicopter for both personal and business use, says: “The ACH130 Aston Martin Edition is a truly beautiful helicopter, which is ideally suited to the needs of owner pilots. I'm very much looking forward to taking it flying.”

The ACH130 Aston Martin Edition is the product of a collaboration between Airbus Corporate Helicopters and Aston Martin. It was completed at Airbus' facility in Oxford, UK, which manages this configuration. Additional avionics equipment was installed at Airbus Helicopters Canada in Fort Erie, Ontario prior to customer acceptance.

“Working with a diverse team across the globe to deliver this helicopter has been an extremely rewarding experience for our teams. It's a pleasure to receive this vote of confidence from Mr. Tremblay with the order of this helicopter, which brought together Airbus teams from around the world,” says Dwayne Charette, president of Airbus Helicopters Canada. “The ACH130 Aston Martin Edition is both luxurious and extremely practical, particularly with the addition of the Canadian manufactured cargo pods outfitted on Mr. Tremblay's helicopter.”
