In a press release earlier today, Airbus and Aston Martin have revealed ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter for customers around the world.
In case you are wondering, the ACH130 helicopter comes with four different interiors and exteriors designed by Aston Martin. As expected, they are pretty impressive thanks to Aston Martin’s expertise in designing products. Similarly to cars, consumers will be able to personalize their helicopters using different sets of personalization options.
Marek Reichman, Vice President and Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin, said, “We have our own set of automotive design principles but in recent years we have been learning how to apply our principles to other areas of design, such as architecture, motorcycles and now helicopters. This first application of our design practices to a helicopter posed a number of interesting challenges but we have enjoyed working through them. Beauty is of vital importance to Aston Martin and to our customers and we think the ACH130 Aston Martin Edition is an inherently beautiful machine. It provided a wonderful canvas for our team to work on so we now look forward to seeing everybody’s reaction.”
“The ACH130 Aston Martin Edition is optimally positioned in the market for hands-on owners who draw satisfaction from personally piloting their aircraft and it generates strong brand-loyalty. In the same way Aston Martin’s products are cars for drivers who relish being at the wheel and they inspire a comparable attachment to the brand. So they are the perfect partner for us in developing this superb new ACH130 Aston Martin Edition,” added, Frédéric Lemos, Head of Airbus Corporate Helicopters
