ACH-160 helicopter delivered
To a Brazilian customer -DATA SHEET
Airbus Helicopters has delivered the world's first ACH-160 (premium version of the H-160 model) to a customer in Brazil on the eve of the 17th edition of the "Annual Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition" ("LABACE", August 9-11) at Congonhas airport, São Paulo. The rotorcraft will notably be the first H-160 to fly in Latin America.
According to data from the Brazilian General Aviation Association (ABAG), more than 2,500 airports and 1,300 heliports in Brazil use corporate aviation services via jets, turboprops, piston aircraft and helicopters.
The ACH-160 is the latest member of the ACH family that is designed in three versions - Line, Line with Lounge package, and Exclusive – to meet the different needs of this demanding market, with various levels of customization to better fit the lifestyle of each customer. Its design, laying claim to sixty-eight new patents, sounds the clarion call for innovations that include the canted Fenestron for greater useful load and a flat attitude in flight, and sound-reducing Blue Edge rotor blades for quieter operations.
The technical data sheet of the H-160 helicopter is attached to this AVIONEWS.
