Airbus Helicopters has delivered the world’s first ACH160 to a customer in Brazil.

The rotorcraft will also be the first H160 to fly in Latin America.

“We are very proud that the world’s first ACH160 has been delivered here in Brazil, and look forward to seeing its distinctive and elegant silhouette flying through the skies of São Paulo, stated Jean-Luc Alfonsi, managing director of Airbus Helicopters’ Brazilian customer centre, Helibras.

“Helibras is the leader in the Brazilian turbine helicopter executive aviation segment and we are confident the ACH160 will set new standards for customers and operators wanting to make a distinctive choice in terms of safety, comfort and performance”.

Technologically advanced helicopter

The ACH160 is the latest member of the ACH family and the most technologically advanced helicopter in its class. It provides 20 per cent greater volume per passenger compared to previous generation medium twin helicopters, 35 per cent larger windows than its competitors, resulting in the brightest cabin in its category and 15 per cent lower fuel burn than its nearest competitor.
