Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) based in Dallas, TX, recently announced it has achieved an EASA STC for the Airbus H145 Mercedes Benz Style luxury interior. MAG produces the interior and an all-new engineering package for the H145 helicopter, which includes proprietary in-flight entertainment (I-FEEL) and internal Wi-Fi.
Airbus Helicopters offers its exclusive Mercedes-Benz Style VIP version on the H145 with higher performance, increased flight safety and improved exterior design over the former EC145 for which this solution was initially developed.
Airbus Helicopters and MAG have so far received five orders for the H145 Mercedes-Benz Style with first delivery targeted by the end of 2015.
The interior is offered in four different versions which can be combined with a real wood floor or a choice of carpeting as well as a new seat design for increased ergonomic comfort. All seats, galley and walls are mounted on rails and can be easily reconfigured from four to eight passengers or removed to transport more luggage or large items.
Multi-purpose storage is made possible by numerous attachment points on the floor and with a new and integrated cabinet, offering increased storage volume.
“Achieving this STC for the facelift of the Mercedes Benz Style is not only a demonstration of our technical capability but also a reflection of our continued partnership with Airbus Helicopters.” said Armando Sassoli, Co-General Manager of Mecaer Aviation Group. “There is a strong future for the VIP configured H145T2 and we are very happy to be a contributing factor.” Sassoli continued.
