Airbus Helicopters has delivered the first VIP version of the H175, the company’s new medium class twin-engine helicopter, which entered service in 2014 for offshore transportation.

The VIP version of the H175 offers cabin interior provided by Pegasus Design. “The H175 enlarges its operational capacity to a completely new mission segment” said Guillaume Faury, President of Airbus Helicopters in a statement Wednesday.

Delivered to an undisclosed customer who will operate it in Europe as a complement to the yacht, the H175 offers a personalized VVIP cabin accommodating seven passengers. The aircraft features a cabin layout with two distinct seating areas: a forward zone that provides a lounge atmosphere with facing club seating for four passengers and a galley, as well as sofa-style seating that comfortably accommodates three passengers at the rear.

In addition to the exclusive cabin and the refinement of materials, the VIP version of the H175 offers some distinctive elements. These include: a hinged door– which optimizes space inside the cabin – a three steps electrical footstep for ease of access, electronically dimmable windows and mood lighting. Passengers will also enjoy in-flight connectivity with satcom, in-flight entertainment system with LCD screens, moving map and images provided by the tail fin and tail skid cameras – all controllable through dedicated touchscreens or personal devices. Also contributing to the jet-like flight experience is the effective soundproof cabin which allows passengers to communicate without headsets.
