Corporate Helicopters of San Diego Eurocopter EC155 is fitted with a corporate/VIP interior.

“At the end of the day it fits the missions that we wanted a corporate helicopter for and there was great value for the money,” said Ivor Shier, founder of Corporate Helicopters of San Diego.

“The lines look sleek. It looks like what you would expect in a corporate aircraft. The quality of the interior is just superb,” Shier added.

The twin-engine EC155 can seat up to eight passengers and has plenty of space for luggage or bags.

“You can turn a three hour drive into a 20 or 30 minute flight,” said Shier. “You can visit several clients face-to-face in one day, something you couldn’t do without a helicopter.”

“We are very pleased to have had this beautiful and efficient aircraft that was produced for Corporate Helicopters,” said Marc Paganini, American Eurocopter president and chief executive. “Like Ivor Shier, we believe corporate helicopters are a time-saving tool. American Eurocopter can provide safe, reliable and efficient customized helicopters to meet any corporate, business or personal requirements.”
