Mr Poonawalla, said, “We are delighted with our selection of the Airbus ACH145 which is certainly a benchmark in its class. It has been chosen keeping in mind the highest levels of customization, comfort and safety. Also, Airbus Helicopters’ comprehensive local support system will ensure the optimal availability of the aircraft.”

The helicopter provides a spacious cabin that can seat up to eight in ACH Line, ACH Mercedes Benz Style or ACH bespoke versions. The ACH145 features Airbus Helicopters’ Helionix avionics, including a standard 4-axis digital Automatic Flight Control System for reduced pilot workload, while the Fenestron enclosed tail rotor dramatically reduces noise levels. The Turbomeca Arriel2E engines, with dual channel FADEC, generate 951 shaft horsepower for take-off and allow improved hover and one-engine inoperative performance as well as increased maximum gross weight capability.
