The Grand offers impressive operational availability and serviceability with the fastest cruise speed and low fuel consumption.

This new intermediate size helicopter with light twin economics has proven to be a major success in its class. Its distinctive characteristics and a wide range of interiors and avionics solutions make it a suitable platform for a multitude of roles including corporate/VIP transport, emergency medical service and offshore transport.
