If you have ever dreamt to stay your days and nights in the sky, Hotelicopter might be at your convenience. Hotelicopter is a HUGE, really huge flying hotel in form of a giant helicopter model from Soviet-made Mil V-12, which are only 2 prototypes available in this world.
The prototypes were modded by Hotelicopter company after purchasing them from Mikhail Leontyevich Mil plant in Panki-Tomilino, Russia in 2004. Up up to the present moment, Hotelicopter company has done enormous of engineering to turn the helicopter into a modern flying hotel which we can enjoy our journey in the sky on this Summer June 26th, 2009!
Hotelicopter features 18 luxuriously-appointed rooms for adrenaline junkies seeking a truly unique and memorable travel experience. Each soundproofed room is equipped with a queen-sized bed, fine linens, a mini-bar, coffee machine, wireless internet access, and all the luxurious appointments you’d expect from a flying five star hotel.
Room service is available one hour after liftoff and prior to landing. The Hotelicopter is due to fly maiden journey this summer(June 26th) with an undisclosed price…
Now that is the problem. No price mention there! Oh I guess it should be around thousands of dollars or perhaps ten thousands dollars! Even so, if you have piles of money to spend, prepare yourself for the following ‘flight schedule’ to enjoy the experience inside this Hotelicopter:
- Inaugural Summer Tour – 14 days (Friday, June 26th, 2009 – Friday, July 10th, 2009)
- California Tour – 14 days (Friday, July 17th, 2009 to Friday, July 24rd, 2009)
- Bay/Jamaica, European Tour – 16 days (Friday, July 31st, 2009 to Sunday, August 16th, 2009)
Any downside? Yes, I guess you can’t check in or check out as you wish as it will have its own schedule to act upon, except there is an emergency case to handle.
