Local sources quote two are due to be delivered to Helibras – the Airbus Helicopters group company in Brazil.  At least one of the pair for Helibras is expected to be used by the manufacturer as a demonstrator.

The third ACH160 is for investment bank BTG Pactual, who also fly a Bombardier Global Express 7500 jet.
