Marenco SwissHelicopter, November 18, 2013 - Marenco Swisshelicopter is proud to announce the World’s Premiere Roll Out of the prototype of the SKYe SH09 helicopter.
The special Press event will be held on Nov. 28, 2013 on the Mollis airport in Switzerland where the MSH staff and the team of suppliers will welcome the press as well as high dignitaries from the industry and from the region.
“Our teams have made outstanding progress in completing the first prototype and in processing the certification of the SKYe SH09,” said Martin Stucki, chief executive officer and designer of the helicopter. He noted “This important achievement is the result of combined efforts from our staff and from our suppliers”.
The prototype aircraft is shown in a matt-grey livery paint but still the carbon-composite airframe is revealed on key areas such as the tail-boom and the shrouded tail-rotor.
Mathias Senes, commercial director, points out that it is rather unique to reach such detailed quality in a first prototype and ads “our prospects and clients will witness our commitment to quality and will certainly value what we meant by High Visibility Cockpit”.
Announced to the market during the 2012 Heli-Expo in Dallas, the High Visibility Cockpit concept is now fully applied to the P1 and the outcome is solid and just stunning. It is certainly an inspiration for new helicopters to come.
