Helicopters have proven to be the most flexible, comfortable, and efficient method of transportation for short distances in overcrowded areas with heavy street traffic. That’s why politicians, executives, athletes, and celebrities often use them to move around large cities. But these days, flying in a helicopter doesn’t mean giving up luxury or comfort, quite the opposite actually. Today, there is a whole range of luxury helicopters that can be both chartered or private, a perfect example is the Eurocopter EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style. By having the option to fly chartered or private this helicopter is the perfect option for flying to your next destination safely without having to worry about contracting the Coronavirus. Keep reading below to learn more about this luxury helicopter by Mercedes-Benz.
The European aircraft company Airbus decided to associate its Eurocopter helicopter division with the German luxury car brand Mercedes-Benz, with the aim of developing a luxury version of one of its most successful models, the Eurocopter EC145, achieving an aircraft that captures the characteristic style of the German luxury car company. The result is an exclusive, one-of-a-kind model, specially created by the advanced design team at Mercedes-Benz in its offices in Como, Italy.
This medium, dual-turbine helicopter with a capacity of seating up to 4 or 8 passengers has the distinctive qualities, style and comfort that Mercedes-Benz is known for since 1926. Deluxe leather modular seats, wood and polished aluminum interior design options, an advanced entertainment system, a system of LED light settings and a double door for easy passenger boarding configure the interior cabin of this aircraft capable of flying more than 3,445 meters (11,302 feet high) high, at a maximum speed of 246 kilometers per hour (152 miles per hour) with a range of 680 kilometers (422 miles).
The outline the EC145 was conceived from a redesign of the helicopter’s nose, with a special coating on the skids and a silver metallic paint, which gives the craft a distinguished look that gets everyone’s attention. The intention of Mercedes-Benz, which is part of the Daimler AG Group was to create an exterior design that would set this model apart from the competition—and other helicopters in the market—all with the Mercedes-Benz seal of approval. “The interior of the EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style represents the brand’s classic design vocabulary and meets the highest expectations in terms of elegance, luxury, and comfort,” says Dr. Gordon Wargener, chief designer at Mercedes-Benz, who directed the project.
This jewel from Airbus caters to a very select market, composed of individuals who could use the aircraft both for short family trips and quick transfers within the city. When time is the most priced commodity, waiting in traffic in the world’s busiest cities, such as New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Madrid, Paris, Moscow or Dubai to name just a few, could wreak havoc on the hectic schedule of any executive. The option of using a private helicopter is no longer a frivolous luxury, but a necessity. The EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style is the perfect aircraft to get you where you want to go in time and in style. ■
