To UK’s HeliGroup, supported by "Red Arrows" display at "Monaco Yacht Show 2018"
UK operator HeliGroup has taken delivery of the first ever ACH-135 Helionix for VIP charter operations from Airbus Corporate Helicopters at the "Monaco Yacht Club" during the annual yacht show in the Principality. The handover event was attended by representatives of global aviation and yachting industries and supported by the Royal Air Force Red Arrows, guests of honour following their air display at the event. Following in the footsteps of the UK Ministry of Defence, which took delivery of the first H-135 Helionix in 2017, HeliGroup selected the aircraft in the lightweight, sports car-inspired ACH Line interior fit configured with the ACH-135 five-seater business configuration. In this way, HeliGroup becomes the first VIP charter company worldwide to mark the introduction of the ACH-135’s step change Helionix capability to private and business aviation. The addition of the ACH-135 Helionix alongside HeliGroup’s current AS-355 NP Twin Squirrel, configured for passenger transport as well as utility operations, gives HeliGroup the flexibility to maximise its position in both the charter and utility missions markets.
