Airbus Helicopters said it has delivered the first VIP version of the H175. It has been delivered to a private customer in Europe to complement a yacht. Pegasus Design, which designs mostly jets and yachts, provided the H175's cabin interior.
The medium twin originally entered served in 2014 for offshore transport and is currently in service in the North Sea and off the West African coast. The VVIP configuration can accommodate seven passengers. Features include a hinged door, electrical steps, dimmable windows, mood lighting, soundproof cabin and various in-flight entertainment systems.
Airbus said a second delivery is expected this year and the first public service configurations in 2017.
