Luxury Aircraft: While the joint-venture makeover of a Eurocopter EC135 by Hermes and Eurocopter is making the rounds in various luxury-lifestyle publications, we found a few other newsworthy items involving these stupendous aircraft that are newsworthy as well. While the EC135 is a top choice of jetsetters and luxury pundits due to its FADEC (full authority digital electronic control) system, quiet engine, superior handling and maneuverability, and a cabin that accommodates up to seven passengers, it also is a dependable helicopter that is used by police departments and emergency-medical services networks worldwide.

The Polish Ministry of Health recently placed an order for 23 EC 135s for its entire fleet of emergency-medical services aircraft. The Spanish Army Disaster Response Unit just acquired its first EC135. The all-purpose vertical-landing flying machine is touted for its performance, safety, and fuel efficiency.

The reported price of a Hermes-designed Eurocopter EC135 begins at around $10 million. Visit the company's Web site, www.eurocopter.com and see its array of aircraft.
