We start things off with one of Sikorsky helicopters. Sikorsky has been manufacturing aircrafts since 1925. It is commonly known as the pioneer of helicopters even though it is not the inventor. This is mainly because Sikorsky manufactured the first stable, single-rotor, fully controllable helicopter. And this particular technology became the base of most current helicopters.

Sikorsky S-92 is a common choice among heads-of-state worldwide. Even though it is not as big as other expensive helicopters, S-92 provides self-indulgent luxury. Its interior is all about high quality furniture and facilities.

Each unit of S-92 can accommodate maximum ten passengers. Those ten people will enjoy sitting on leather seats with extra room for their legs. If it gets too hot out there, just adjust the temperature from where you are sitting.

Sikorsky S-92 can go as far as 999 kilometers with 290 kph of cruising speed. But with those luxuries it offers, I would suggest the pilot to slow down so I could just enjoy the ride and forget the $17 million I would have spent to buy the helicopter.
