Scenic's Airbus H130 helicopters are arriving this week

This week, Scenic Eclipse will roll-out the company’s state-of-the-art Airbus H130 helicopters.

The H130 features reduced sound levels that are seven decibels below the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirement.

The H130 is also one of the most environmentally friendly helicopters on the market with an efficient fuel burn that ensures lower emissions and less fuel usage.


See the world from new heights

Scenic founder and chairman, Glen Moroney, said the two helicopters on board Scenic Eclipse will offer guests a unique opportunity to go above and beyond.

“Scenic has always sought to venture beyond the horizon and with our helicopters we provide guests with the opportunity to enjoy unparalleled access to some of nature’s most beautiful sites. 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 for all passengers.”


Specific modifications have been made to the H130 to ensure it meets the requirements of Scenic in terms of safety and guest comfort. These include Bose noise cancelling headsets; five cameras fitted to the interior and exterior of the helicopter to provide guests with footage of their flight; custom leather seats and interior fit out; and a blue tooth audio system allowing music to be piped to guests. As the H130 has been designed to be carried on board the Scenic Eclipse, it has been fitted with a quick rotor blade fold kit to allow the ship to have a smaller hangar than is usually required.

The Scenic Eclipse helicopters were commissioned from Airbus in France before being shipped to Australia’s Pacific Crown Helicopters for final fit out and testing. Pacific Crown Helicopters specializes in Airbus helicopters and is a recognized world leader in the field.
