The H130 and H125 are high-performance single-engine aircraft that come equipped with modern glass cockpit avionics and advanced safety features and are fully customizable to meet individual preferences. Airbus Helicopters Inc. will exhibit at Inside Static Display #14 in the Orange County Convention Center.

“Both the H130 and H125 are outstanding aircraft for business owners and executives that need swift and versatile transportation that is uniquely capable for managing their companies or getting away for a family weekend,” said Ralph Crosby, Director of Corporate and VIP sales for Airbus Helicopters Inc. “These helicopters, with their safety features, as well as low acquisition and operating costs, can be used for both work and leisure activities.”

The H130 is in a class by itself when it comes to single-engine aircraft for business and VIP operators. It offers the largest cabin in its class, provides outstanding visibility for pilot and passengers, and impressive versatility. The signature Fenestron enclosed tail rotor of the H130 imparts an exotic look, improved functionality, and safety, as well as very low external sound levels that make it urban-environment friendly.

The H130 offers creature comforts expected by a demanding clientele including an active anti-vibration system for a smooth ride; air conditioning capable of handling the hottest climates; and a high useful load for carrying luggage or other customer equipment.


Built in Columbus, Miss. the H125 AStar is the highest performing single-engine helicopter on the market with outstanding speed, high and hot performance and payload capabilities. It is highly capable as a VIP or corporate transport helicopter, and can be quickly converted to carry a load or do other work when needed. It comfortably carries five passengers along with the pilot.

Both the H125 and the H130 incorporate the latest in aircraft safety systems, including dual hydraulics, dual channel engine FADEC, crash-resistant fuel cells and energy-attenuating seats.
