ACH takes Aston Martin Editions into US and Latin America
In a series of ACH130 Aston Martin Edition firsts, ACH has delivered one to a US customer and has sold another to a buyer in Latin America.
ACH has sold the first ACH130 Aston Martin Edition in Latin America.

Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) has recently delivered an ACH130 Aston Martin Edition to one US customer, a private individual who also owns an Aston Martin luxury sports car, and has sold another to a private owner in the mid-west of Brazil in a landmark deal announced at the NBAA Annual Convention that underlines its growing market presence in the region.

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

The Brazilian sale is the first ACH130 Aston Martin Edition to that country, and the 17th to be sold worldwide. It represents the latest in a tradition of firsts for ACH in Brazil. In 2018 the first production ACH145 Line entered service with a Brazilian customer, and in August this year the world's first ACH160 was also delivered there.

ACH has built a market share of 70 per cent in the private and business aviation market in Brazil which, with its vast land area and urban congestion challenges, is among the world's most important helicopter markets. Across Latin America ACH has a market share of 35 per cent, with 268 helicopters in service.

In May this year ACH committed to producing another 15 Aston Martin Editions following the quicker than expected sales of the original run of 15.
