Eco-Star Helicopter

Since the late 1980's,the American Eurocopter A-Star has been the tour helicopter of choice for professional tour operations worldwide. In Hawaii it is the industry standard?favored by all the top helicopter tour companies for its open cabin design that affords a 180-degree sweeping view for each passenger.

This feature has been further enhanced in the revolutionary new American Eurocopter ECO-Star - the first touring helicopter of the 21st Century. But that's just the beginning. Passenger comfort, interior space, and engineering have all been raised to state-of-the-art levels.

  • ECO-Star's 23% increase in cabin space over the A-Star affords significantly greater personal space for guests, along with improved visibility. All A-Stars use bench seating for every passenger.
  • ECO-Star features superior comfort; individual seats for every passenger afford the kind of shoulder room and personal space found in airline "business class" seating.
  • ECO-Star features raised rear seating and wrap-around glass cockpit, for greater visibility from every seat.
  • ECO-Star: First helicopter specifically designed for touring.
  • ECO-Star: high-tech, enclosed "fenestron," or "fan in fin," replaces A-Star's conventional tail rotor. Fenestron is: Safer, Quieter and More efficient - using 25% less engine horsepower, which can now be utilized by the main rotor system.
  • ECO-Star's state-of-the-art fuel control automatically optimizes main rotor speed for quietest operations and instant power response. Achieved with a "Full Authority Digital Electronic Control" (FADEC), utilizing a primary electronic channel with one electronic backup channel and a third hydro-mechanical backup control.
  • ECO-Star's engine uses latest "Grown Crystal" technology for turbine blades - increasing power, heat tolerance and fuel efficiency. This, along with the FADEC, is the same technology used in state-of-the-art airline engines such those on the leading-edge Boeing 777.
  • ECO-Star features dual hydraulic systems.
  • ECO-Star has a $1.8 million price tag - 80% more than a standard A-Star.
