Scenic Eclipse lifts off

Cruise Weekly - - News -

SCENIC has taken de­liv­ery of two Air­bus H130 heli­copters ( pic­tured) that will be sta­tioned on board Scenic Eclipse to pro­vide pas­sen­gers with aerial views and ac­cess to pop­u­lar na­ture spots.

The chop­pers are specif­i­cally de­signed for quiet fly­ing, mean­ing they can hover over na­tional parks and an­i­mal re­serves that reg­u­late air space with strict sound re­stric­tions.

“We have specif­i­cally se­lected this model for its wide, un­ob­structed cabin space which can ac­com­mo­date the pi­lot and up to six pas­sen­gers, with out­stand­ing vis­i­bil­ity,” said Scenic founder and chair­man Glen Moroney.

Com­forts on board in­clude Bose noise can­celling head­sets, cus­tomised leather seats, ex­ter­nal video record­ing, and bluetooth mu­sic streaming.
