HELIPADS AND HELICOPTERS

Helipads on luxury yachts are commonplace.  Ondeck helipads no longer turn heads at the quay in Monaco.  The type of helicopter on the pad still garners envious gazes, however.

Eurocopter premiered the first finished aircraft at this month’s EBACE 2011.  Only one year after unveiling the EC145 Benz concept airship, they did it again.  Last year’s European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) was in Geneva.
 

WHAT IS THE EC145

Mercedes new helicopter is inspired by R-class high-end vehicles.  The twin-engine Mercedes Benz-style helicopter features a versatile interior. For instance, it is enabled by a modular approach .
