Fly­ing in style

Aviation Business - - ROUNDUP -

At last month’s 2018 Monaco Yacht Show, Air­bus Cor­po­rate He­li­copters (ACH), Air­bus’ pri­vate and busi­ness he­li­copter divi­sion, show­cased its new ACH135 He­lionix. As the lat­est it­er­a­tion of the He­lionix twin-engine he­li­copter line, the up­dated air­craft boasts stream­lined flight man­age­ment con­trols, im­proved safety, as well as en­hanced sit­u­a­tion aware­ness for the pilot. New fea­tures on the air­craft in­clude an auto-hover ca­pa­bil­ity that is ideally suited for low-vis­i­bil­ity and high traf­fic sce­nar­ios, as well as a ‘go-around’ fea­ture that locks the he­li­copter into a set hold­ing pat­tern. The ACH135 also comes stan­dard with au­to­mated engine man­age­ment, which im­proves over­all flight safety and com­pen­sates if one of the two en­gines fail.

“With ap­prox­i­mately 300 he­li­copter-ca­pa­ble yachts world­wide, there are in­creas­ing re­quire­ments for more re­li­able, com­pact and ver­sa­tile he­li­copters ca­pa­ble of trans­port­ing pas­sen­gers and cargo in all en­vi­ron­ments,” said Fred­eric Le­mos, head of Air­bus Cor­po­rate He­li­copters.
