Falcon Aviation Services (FAS) today signed an agreement to become the launch customer for Eurocopter’s EC135 l’Hélicoptère par Hermès.

FAS, which provides helicopter charter and associated services in the United Arab Emirates and Gulf region, will take delivery of the aircraft at the end of the year.

“We are extremely honoured to be the first customer for this exclusive l’Hélicoptère par Hermès,” says Salem Al Kayoumi, FAS chairman. “Inside this helicopter where every minute detail is well designed and well thought out, it is as if we are entering a cocooned zone of comfort where all our needs are taken care of, leaving us the luxury of travelling in peace without having to worry or think about anything.”

Philippe Harache, Eurocopter senior executive vice president, says: “In addition to being an efficient, convenient and safe means of transport, the helicopter also has to sport a classy design and elegant interiors in order to provide a unique travelling experience for our customers.”

Eurocopter has teamed up with French design house Hermès to create the ultra-VIP helicopter which was first unveiled at last year’s NBAA.
