COMPARING FX STAR AND WHISPER STAR:
Since the late 1980s, the American Eurocopter "FX 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 180º sweeping view for each passenger.
This feature has been further enhanced in the revolutionary new American Eurocopter "Whisper 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.
ASTAR 350BA-FX - The "FX STAR"
The industry standard “Black Beauty” has all forward facing customized bench style seats giving excellent visibility. Sunshine has flown over 900,000 satisfied passengers in our “Black Beauties” since 1985. Recently upgraded in 2008 to the all new ASTAR 350FX, the “FX” carries more weight, flies faster, is quieter and more fuel efficient. The increased capacity allows the FX to have “First Class” seating. The conversion from AS350BA to AS350FX is provided by Heli-Lynx Helicopter Service of Canada and approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. Ross Scott, President, says “the FX is the most environmentally friendly helicopter we operate with a lower noise footprint and 25% less fuel burn. It raises the bar for green helicopter air touring in Hawaii.”
FX Open Seating: Industry standard six-passengers, seat assignment determined by weight and balance.
FX First Class Seating: Passengers enjoy “First Class” seating next to pilot, with extra arm and leg room. Maximum combined weight for two
passengers: 400 lbs.
EC 130 B4 - The "Whisper STAR"
The EC 130 B4 WhisperSTAR is the ultimate in sightseeing helicopters. More interior room, more visibility with added Plexiglas and elevated rear seats. Sunshine customizes the standard factory interior with business and first class seating to further enhance passenger comfort and visibility. Soar in the state-of-the-art WhisperSTAR and experience the superb quiet and ultra smooth most advanced technological sightseeing helicopter ever!
