Airbus Helicopters is bringing three aircraft to its booth (3432, Hall B) at Heli-Expo 2020 next week in Anaheim—an H125 single, ACH130 single in Aston Martin livery, and H175 super-medium twin in offshore configuration. Helicopters sold via Airbus Corporate Helicopters are badged ACH.

Additionally, the company’s exhibit will feature a “digital support concept” and an “immersive experience” for the new H160 medium twin in three configurations: offshore energy, private and business aviation, and air ambulance. At the “HCare Corner,” attendees can receive more information regarding a new online customer portal, digital services, analytics, training, and HCare global contracts.

More Airbus helicopters will be on static display, including an AS332 from Heli Austria in a firefighting configuration, H125 from Brainerd Helicopters in an aerial work configuration, H125 from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Air Support Division in law enforcement configuration, H145 from San Diego Gas & Electric, and the Vahana eVTOL demonstrator. On the flight line at Heli-Expo, customers can experience a demo in an H125 equipped with the new Garmin TXi avionics, H135, and ACH130 with a bespoke interior. 

“Customer centricity is the focus of our display at Heli-Expo this year, as it is for our operations on a daily basis,” said Bruno Even, Airbus Helicopters CEO. “The continuous product improvements and service enhancements being implemented on our wide range of aircraft are intended to provide value to our customers and to facilitate the varying missions of our helicopters all over the world.”
