Airbus Corporate Helicopters at Heli Expo 2023 launched a range of new external liveries and cabin interiors for its ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter. The selection of colour schemes and finishings reflects the latest thinking of Aston Martin’s design team applied to its ultra-luxury sports cars.

“Our collaboration with Aston Martin has been highly fruitful from the very beginning and now our customers have the opportunity to capitalize on the continuous creativity that has always characterized their output of luxury cars,” said Frederic Lemos, Head of Airbus Corporate Helicopters.

External colours range from what Airbus describes as a grey shade through an understated dark crimson to a highly distinctive green. The move marks the first updating of the ACH130 Aston Martin Edition since its launch in January 2020.

The interior and exterior designs created by Aston Martin are applied by craftspeople at Airbus Helicopters in the UK at Oxford. The original external and internal design offerings are still available.


“Airbus and Aston Martin is a unique collaboration, which has already created the stunning ACH130 Aston Martin Edition helicopter. Our Design Team is now highly experienced in applying its automotive design techniques to other mediums, from luxury apartments to fine whiskies and motorcycles to helicopters,” said Cathal Loughnane, Aston Martin’s Director of Partnerships. “The additional liveries and interiors for the ACH130 Aston Martin Edition have been created to capture the essence of both of our brands and I think you will agree that they look incredible.”
