Eurocopter unveils VIP EC175 helicopter
Eurocopter has unveiled executive and VIP versions of the EC175 helicopter at EBACE.
The company has introduced a VIP and executive version of the new helicopter, the interior cabin was designed by Peder Eidsgaard of Pegasus Design, whose worldwide reputation results from his work on business jets and super yachts.
“As of today, airborne luxury and style have a new name: the Eurocopter EC175,” said Olivier Lambert, Eurocopter’s senior vice president for Sales and Customer Relations. “Through our teaming with Pegasus Design, the highest attention for detail and design harmony unites to create an environment that will please the most discerning travelers.”
“The refinement and quality level incorporated by Pegasus Design results from the company’s understanding of high-end customers’ expectations, and makes these helicopters a perfect extension of the finesse and sophistication typically found aboard business jets and super yachts,” Lambert added.
The EC175 VIP is offered in three different styles, all accommodating from six to eight passengers. The first style is “avant-garde,” inspired by modern sport cars; another brings the French flair – contemporary and highly sophisticated – inspired by modern penthouse interiors; while the third is more classical, inspired by the grand villas of Europe.
The EC175 executive version, a mock-up is on display at EBACE this week, seats nine to twelve passengers.
