L’Hélicoptère par Hermès : Elegance in motion is based on the EC135, the world leader in the new generation of light, twin-engine helicopters, ‘l’Hélicoptère par Hermès’ unites the latest and most advanced aircraft technologies developed by Eurocopter with the savoir-faire of Hermès, which has accompanied discerning travellers for more than 170 years.
Eurocopter EC 135 helicopter designed by the French luxury brand in rich brown with classic Hermès orange accents. The EC135 is a twin engined multi-mission helicopter which can hold five passengers plus a pilot and luggage. The helicopter combines a spacious cabin, ample storage compartment, unobstructed flat floors and lateral sliding doors that open to reveal a sober light-filled and unexpectedly spacious interior configuration. The cabin was completely redesigned by Hermès Interior and Design to maximize available space: Surfaces from floor to ceiling have been covered in “Toile H”, a Hermès canvas used to manufacture the firm’s travel-ware since the nineteen-twenties. Seats and banquette are handcrafted for exceptional comfort, and upholstered in calf leathers, naturally grained and highly resistant.
The craftsmen of Hermès Interior and Design have optimized the use of fabrics and leathers to soften ambient noise and vibration. Consoles, drawers and cabinets have been recessed or placed entirely out of view. A sliding glass partition now separates passenger compartment and cockpit, enhancing privacy while allowing light to enter. Overhead Air Conditioning ducts have been center-aligned across the ceiling, providing passengers with cleaner, more symmetrical visuals. Even the landing gear has been redesigned to allow for easier and more elegant access to the cabin. In short, each aesthetic choice is combined with a functional improvement.
If one wishes there is an available Buggati Veyron designed by Hermès to accompany your very own private Hermès helicopter.
