Scenic cruises have taken delivery of its two Airbus H130 helicopters for the Scenic Eclipse, which is due to be launched in January 2019.
The Airbus H130 helicopters are one of the quietest helicopters, with low sound levels of 7 decibels which is below the International Civil Aviation Organisations (ICAO) requirements. The H130 are the most environmentally sound helicopters with low burning fuel and fewer emissions.
Scenic Founder and Chairman, Glen Moroney, said the two helicopters will offer guests a unique opportunity to go above and beyond. Each helicopter has wide, an unobstructed cabin space which can accommodate the pilot and up to six passengers with outstanding visibility for all passengers.
Modifications have been made to the H130 to Scenic’s specific requirements in terms of safety and guest comfort. These include Bose noise canceling headsets; five cameras fitted to the interior and exterior of the helicopter to provide guests with stunning footage of their flight; customized leather seats and a Bluetooth audio system allowing music to be played to guests.
The H130 helicopters have been designed to be carried on board the Scenic Eclipse and both have been fitted with quick blade folding kits to reduce the hanger space required on board.
