The World’s First Flying Hotel

Bookmark The World’s First Flying Hotel

The flying hotel and largest helicopter in the world, is modeled on the Soviet-made Mil V-12, of which there were only two prototypes ever made. The Hotelicopter Company purchased one of these prototypes from the Mikhail Leontyevich Mil helicopter plant in Panki-Tomilino, Russia in 2004 and have been engineering the world’s first flying hotel ever since.

The 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)
