TAKE TO THE SKIES AGAIN WITH ASTON MARTIN

Aston Martin Lagonda and Airbus Corporate Helicopters announce second series of the stunning ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter ..


Back in 2020 Aston Martin Lagonda and Airbus Corporate Helicopters collaborated to create the stylish special edition of the ACH130 helicopter inspired by the Aston Martin DB11 although it was priced at a staggering $3.1million the limited series of just 15 examples has now sold out, prompting the two companies to renew this lucrative partnership and produce a second batch of Aston Martin helicopters.


The second series will be designed exactly the same as the first meaning the helicopter

will be offered with the same options in terms of four external liveries with complementary interiors, the helicopters are embellished with Aston Martin signature elements, starting with the iconic Aston Martin wings, which are embossed onto luxury leather features, tastefully positioned throughout the cabin.

The Stirling Green-themed external scheme, which is already flying on the first aircraft, features a painted gradient, which fades down into Jet Black on the underside of the helicopter with Skyfall Silver around the cowlings. Further external liveries are available with other Aston Martin paint colours including Xenon Grey, Arizona and Ultramarine Black.


Inside, the automotive-inspired cabin, which offers a higher level of comfort, is trimmed in Pure Black ultra-suede with a palette of selectable leathers comprising Oxford Tan, Pure Black, Cormorant and Ivory.


On the rear of the front seats the same brogue detailing that is found in a DB11 runs down the centre of the seat and the doors have been trimmed with leather to provide passengers with comfortable touch points during their flight. By using materials from the Aston Martin automotive palette the interior of this special edition of the ACH130 sits in harmony with the interior of Aston Martin sports cars.

Each of these special edition helicopters will have a plaque included on the instrument panel which shows the partnership logos, the registration of the aircraft, the edition number and the owner’s name, should they wish to have it included.




Powered by an Arriel 2D jet engine that provides 952 shaft horsepower at take-off, the helicopter which can carry up to six passengers can reach speeds of up to 250 km/h but is best enjoyed at it's cruising speed of 134 knots (154 mph).
