A debut of Luxaviation Helicopters ... sounds strange? However it is true - this is the first time for the company at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Charlotte Pedersen, CEO, Luxaviation Helicopters, says: “Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show provides an excellent opportunity for us to discuss with new and existing customers how we can support them in combining their yacht experience with their helicopter needs. We are looking forward to offering advice and support for attendees on how our expertise can help them to navigate these two highly regulated fields.

“On display will be our ACH145, operated by Starspeed, the UK’s most experienced helicopter operator, which joined the group in 2017. Almost half of Starspeed’s fleet of 25 helicopters are able to take off and land on yachts and the ACH145 is perfectly suited to yacht operations because of its size, performance, smooth flight characteristics and modern equipment.” 

The VIP helicopter charter company will have an ACH145 from its managed fleet on display throughout the show, at Airbus Corporate Helicopters’ exhibition space in Super Yacht Berth 5. 

The ACH145 can accommodate up to nine passengers, plus one or two pilots, and has a range easily capable of covering New York City to Washington DC or London to Paris. 

Luxaviation Helicopters launched its Charter Alliance in March 2019, to connect VIP helicopter charter operators around the world. Seven months on, the Alliance is now comprised of Italy-based HoverFly, as well as ExecuJet’s helicopter fleet in Mexico and South Africa, Philippines-based PhilJets, Spain-based Hélity, US-based HeliFlite, Austria-based HeliAustria, France-based Azur Hélicoptère and UK-based Starspeed.
