Airbus Corporate Jets and Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACJ and ACH; Booth N5216, Static SD1110) are jointly exhibiting this week at NBAA-BACE 2019 and are displaying an ACJ319 and ACH145, respectively, showcasing the aircrafts’ bespoke interiors. Their presentation aims to underscore the message that “the ACJ and ACH are part of the only manufacturer to offer both corporate jets and helicopters,” marketed under the company’s Business Aviation by Airbus offering, the French aircraft manufacturer said. 

Also at NBAA, ACJ is launching the iflyACJ website to help VIP customers choose the best aircraft for their missions from among the 12 ACJ charter operators worldwide. “For the first time, we connect business jet travelers to ACJ operators—just click to book a unique flying experience,” said ACJ president Benoit Defforge.  

The ACJ319 on display, with an interior by Comlux Completion (Booth N5823), features lounge and dining/conference areas, and two private rooms that can serve as either a lounge or bedroom, along with ensuite bath and shower.

In addition to the AHC145 on static, ACH has a cabin mockup of an ACH145 cabin with a Mercedes-Benz interior, and a half-scale model of the new five-bladed ACH145, currently in flight testing. Airbus is also displaying at the Innovation Area in Hall D its Vahana Alpha Two, one of a pair of electric vertical takeoff and landing demonstrators the company is developing.
