Airbus Helicopters to display market-leading private and business solutions at NBAA 2018

Airbus is no.1 in 5 out of 6 North American market segments, including private and business aviation

GRAND PRAIRIE, TX. (11 October 2018) – With close to 30% of the private and business helicopter market in North America, Airbus Helicopters remains the leader in this segment. Airbus is gearing up to demonstrate what sets it apart from the competition and will be showcasing its dedicated corporate brand - Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) - in North America at this year’s NBAA trade show, taking place at the Orlando Convention Center from October 16-18.

“Our customers come to Airbus Helicopters for a very specific customer experience, especially those in this segment,” said Chris Emerson, president of Airbus Helicopters, Inc. and head of the North America region. “They rely on our products’ ability to combine modern technology with new transportation possibilities and look to us to provide a unique leisure and business environment. We continue to raise the bar in this important segment through our ACH offer and will be emphasizing this at NBAA.”

Thanks to their unmatched comfort and cockpit visibility, combined with some of the lowest sound levels in the industry, the Airbus range of helicopters offers a perfect solution to meet private customers’ high expectations. During the show, a scale model of the ACH160 will be on the indoor booth and both a single and twin-engine helicopter will be present on the outdoor static display for visitors to learn more about the ACH offers best suited for private customers.

Globally, private and business operations represent Airbus Helicopters’ largest civil market for units booked and delivered over the past five years. In North America, it is the 2nd largest civil market and represents nearly a quarter of the company’s projected bookings in the coming years. This segment has the most new operators, both new to Airbus and new to rotorcraft, of which most fly a fixed-wing aircraft.

Business Aviation by Airbus, the banner under which the company will be represented at the show, highlights the company's unique position, through Airbus Corporate Helicopters (ACH) and Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ), as the only manufacturer worldwide to provide dedicated PBA fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
