Airbus receives an order of 43 helicopters from Italy


Airbus Helicopters announced a definite order for 43 aircraft from business aviation operator Air Corporate on Thursday, marking the company's largest-ever deal in Italy. At the EBACE show in Geneva, the world's largest commercial helicopter manufacturer announced an order from Verona-based Air Corporate for 40 light single-engine H125/130 and three ACH160, a corporate version of its latest H160 medium model.

According to Airbus Helicopters, the helicopters will be supplied over the next few years for a variety of private and business passenger services, as well as utility duties. Airbus Helicopters is a subsidiary of Airbus, whose CEO Guillaume Faury stated this month that the market for civil helicopters was recovering from a low point in 2021 and 2022. Services are extremely profitable.


The H125/130 Ecureuil or Squirrel family, now in its fifth decade, is the world's best-selling helicopter. Europe approved the medium-sized utility H160 in 2020, and it has subsequently been cleared in Brazil and Japan. Airbus Helicopters is awaiting authorization in the United States, where approvals for aerospace products have been delayed since the Boeing 737 airliner disaster. GDAT, one of China's largest helicopter lessors, ordered 50 H160 helicopters in April.
