Eurocopter announced two orders for the EC175 helicopter in its VIP configuration from unnamed customers at Helitech International 2013. Both aircraft will be delivered in 2016.

“This market response underscores the EC175 VIP’s unparalleled elements of style and comfort,” said Olivier Lambert, Eurocopter senior vice president for sales and customer relations.

Lambert added: “It combines the largest cabin of any medium-sized twin-engine helicopter with a superior level of interior cabin creativity from Pegasus Design’s Peder Eidsgaard, whose worldwide reputation results from his work on business jets and super yachts.”
