Airbus to Showcase ACH160, ACH145 and ACH135 at Monaco Yacht Show

Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) is at the Monaco Yacht Show this week to showcase the ACH160 to prospective customer.

The aircraft is the centrepiece of a triumvirate of Airbus helicopters which also includes the ACH145 and the lighter ACH135 – all fitted to purpose for yacht operations.

The ACH160 promises to be a striking sight over Monaco’s bay on 26th September with a landing and take-off from the 139m Lürssen Flying Fox. The helicopter's interior concept is the result of a collaboration between ACH Creative Style Studio and Harrison Eidsgaard, one of the most sought after names in the superyacht design industry.

The first two ACH160 are already on the final assembly line at Airbus’ Marignane plant.

EASA Certification of the H160 in transport configuration is due by the end of the year and the first ACH160 will be delivered next year.

Also on display will be an ACH135, equipped with Airbus’ ACH Line in-house interior, embarked on M/Y Bintador, a Tankoa-built 50m yacht at location C09.

The range is rounded off by an ACH145 based on the terrace of the Yacht Club de Monaco. This helicopter is finished in the Mercedes Benz Style Special Edition.

Visitors can also see the latest release of the ACH Yacht Interface App, a tool dedicated to supporting yacht designers and shipbuilders in integrating ACH aircraft into new yacht projects. This tool provides key preliminary information for incorporating ACH helicopters on-board and serves to prevent costly retrofits.

Head of Airbus Corporate Helicopters, Frederic Lemos, said, “We are thrilled to be at Monaco once more and we look forward to demonstrating the suitability of our helicopter range to the needs of yacht designers, builders and owners.”

The Monaco Yacht Show 2019 is on from 25 to 28 September.
