See the best destinations – from exclusive angles

Venturing far beyond the horizon, Scenic Eclipse’s helicopter excursions make our ethos of exclusivity a reality.

When soaring high above planet Earth on board our state-of-the-art Airbus H130 helicopters, you’ll experience nature’s most serene, beautiful and exclusive locations – usually out-of-reach to the ordinary traveler.

From gazing down towards lush, colorful, coral formations in the Caribbean, to gliding high above the endless white tundra of the Arctic Circle, an experience in Scenic Eclipse’s luxurious helicopter is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Nothing beats the excitement of flying low, looking down at the dramatic, rocky crags of the Scottish Isles, or taking a trip deep into inland Antarctica, discovering the rich and varied wildlife that exists there.

 A Look Inside - Our Airbus H130 helicopters

On board the World’s First Discovery Yachts, 6-star luxury is our priority. With this in mind, we’ve chosen one of the quietest helicopters in the skies, the H130. Setting the standard for international, high-end tourism operations, the ultra-low noise levels on board the H130 are seven decibels below the official International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirement.

The H130 is also spacious inside, perfect for guests' comfort and relaxation whilst in-flight. Glenn Moroney, Scenic Founder and Chairman, says:
"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.” 

Sightsee in luxury 

With state-of-the-art technology

Equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art technology, our Scenic Eclipse Airbus helicopters allow guests to fly to previously out-of-reach vantage points, which offer unparalleled views of Earth’s most impressive landscapes and environments.

When inside the Airbuses, you’ll experience a seamless continuation of the 6-star, premium ethos we provide on board Scenic Eclipse. With Bose noise-cancelling headsets, five interior cameras for in-flight footage, luxurious custom leather interior detailing and a Bluetooth music system for in-flight entertainment, we go the extra mile to create an ultra-luxurious experience for our guests.

To see the world from the best possible views, we’ve installed a large, wrap-around windscreen in the helicopters, to provide guests with incredible views, whether facing forwards or in the rear positions, where seats are raised above on a ‘theater-style’ platform.
