Hill Helicopters has unveiled an advanced online aircraft configurator tool for the HX50 luxury turbine private helicopter. The configurator allows customers to visualise their personalised aircraft, choosing customisations from paint colour and finish to options supporting a variety of operations and environments.

“We designed HX50 to be an aerial grand tourer, complete with a full suite of VFR equipment, advanced safety features and a class-leading level of standard equipment,” says Hill Helicopters president and CEO Jason Hill. “With our configurator, customers can individualise their aircraft with custom colours and choose from a variety of enhanced capability equipment and further experiential refinements that support a lifetime of adventures.”

The Hill HX50 online configurator illustrates all standard paint colour options in addition to most optional additions. Indicative costs for each option are listed online at the company's website with safety-focused options offered below market rates.

The HX50 is available in a range of metallic colours, hand selected to accentuate the aircraft's detail and form. Customers can choose to upgrade to the premium paint package, which includes custom colour matching and specialist matte, satin, ultra-metallic or pearlescent finishes.

For those seeking a more assertive or themed appearance, Hill provides bespoke paint schemes tailored to a client's individual needs for a completely individual aircraft appearance.

Climate seats deliver another level of refinement, with controllable electric seat heaters and air-conditioned seat ventilation for all seats. An upgrade to the fully integrated centre console includes a small compartment beneath the armrest cushion to chill drinks and inflight snacks.
