ACH130 AM Teased Ahead Of Q1 2020 Reveal 

It seems to be a norm in recent times with collaborations being forged between brands, more so on lifestyle brands with the aviation industry. At Pen Aviation, being bestowed as the only commercial agent for Airbus Helicopters in Malaysia by far, we are privileged and glad to bring to you an early tease on this collaboration. 

With this said, Airbus Corporate Helicopters – a division of Airbus Helicopters who provides VIP and corporate rotorcraft solutions worldwide, together with Aston Martin Lagonda – the luxury automotive group focused on the creation of exclusive cars and SUVs, has recently teased of their new partnership which will bring together the best of aeronautical design and automotive. 

Within closed doors for the past 12 months, designers from both sterling brands have worked together on the aesthetic styling of the first product from this collaboration – due to be revealed early in Q1 2020, specifically 3rd January at Courchevel, in the French Alps. 

Airbus Corporate Helicopters prides itself as the global market leader in the private and business aviation (PBA) sector with more than 1,800 aircraft fielded in 130 countries and a market share in excess of 50%.  

Frédéric Lemos, Head of Airbus Corporate Helicopters commented: “This is a bold cooperation which corresponds to our tradition of experimenting with new design approaches, the result is a unique creation of breathtaking design accomplishment and beauty.” 

“Applying our own automotive design principles in the aerospace world is a fascinating challenge and one that we are very much enjoying. I’m looking forward to the reveal in the New Year so we can show everyone what we have accomplished together.” – commented Aston Martin Lagonda’s Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman on the new partnership. 

From the various hints from the release and teaser, the reveal would likely be the highly versatile intermediate single engine Airbus Corporate Helicopter H130 decked out with Aston Martin Lagonda’s luxurious touch. The two luxurious badges of ACH and Aston Martin, would further dictate that this particular H130 would serve primarily within the private and business aviation missions – but let us wait and see as the reveal date is just around the turn of the decade. Keep a close watch on this space, as we bring to you the latest development.
