19 seats for passenger and offshore transport

The two pilot and 19-seat configuration is adapted for commercial passenger transport and offshore operations. The air-conditioned cabin and energy-absorbing seats in a staggered arrangement increase passenger comfort, while a central “aisle” and large windows impart a sense of space.

11 seats for VIP transport

The two pilot and 11-seat configuration is a solution for VIP transport, with a front lounge outfitted with four armchairs, a second area with six comfortably-appointed VIP seats and one flight attendant seat, with room for a toilet. Sound-proofed and air-conditioned, the cabin’s space and quiet benefit both work and conversation.
