STUTTGART: The line between the aircraft and automobile business are not so clear cut anymore as exemplified by Mercedes-Benz.
Mercedes-Benz is now into aircraft interior fittings, and its first effort is seen in this “Mercedes-Benz Style” helicopter.
The EC145 “Mercedes-Benz Style” helicopter from Eurocopter celebrates its world premiere today at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition 2011 (EBACE) in Geneva, after which it will be handed over to a European customer.
The EC145 “Mercedes-Benz Style” offers deluxe materials, elegant woods, and ambient lighting familiar from the S and E-Class that can be adjusted to a number of different colour and brightness settings, as well as spacious multi-function boxes with various equipment options.
Moreover, the passenger cabin has been made from the outset to be versatile for a diverse range of travel needs – from business or family travel, to leisure and sporting trips.
All seats are fixed to rails and can be rearranged easily in a number of different arrangements for four to eight passengers, or removed altogether in order to create space for luggage.
The load area also offers a high degree of flexibility with an extensive range of anchoring options on the floor and walls.
