Airbus at Heli-Expo in Atlanta noted its sale of two Airbus Corporate Helicopters in North to Mountain Management and Sylvain Oligny.
“North American customers have continued to see the value helicopters provide for private and business aviation purposes, leading to a very active market that has nearly doubled over the past two years,” said Romain Trapp, President of Airbus Helicopters, Inc. and Head of the North America Region.
Sylvain Oligny of Quebec is an existing Airbus customer in the transportation sector. He has confirmed the purchase of an ACH130 to upgrade his current EC120B. The helicopter will be equipped with a customized interior and cold weather kit to meet the year round operational needs of Oligny’s company, Aviation St-Michel.
A first time Airbus customer, Franklin Mountain Management placed an order for an ACH130, opting to upgrade its original order to the Aston Martin Edition. The aircraft will feature special edition interior and exterior options designed by Aston Martin. Franklin Mountain Management intends to use the helicopter for VIP transport, real estate tours, and various ranch purposes across locations in New Mexico and Texas.
