Hotelicopter : The World’s First Flying Hotel

The owner of Hotelicopper has been trying to create the world’s largest helicopter as well as the world’s first flying hotel by modifying a Soviet-made Mil V-12 since 2004. This massive flying machine features everything from room service and private entertainment systems to extras like yoga classes, tea garden, spa treatment, gaming and many others that someone would anticipate from a 5-star hotel. With the length of 42m and 14m of height, this giant aircraft can fly with a maximum weight of 232,870 lb. Maximum speed of this flying hotel is 255 km/h and expected cruising speed is 237 km/h.

  1. Hey, LaptopBags, stop spamming sites with your ridiculous comparison. This isn’t anything LIKE the Hindenburg. And while it certainly looks funny, it could work. Perhaps it would take more open minded people who think, though for it to work.

    That disparaging attitude is why we don’t have nice things.

  2. Applications other:
    Mobile Command Post
    MedEvac
    VIP Transport
    new MARINE ONE?
    R&D
    Mobile lab
    Mobile office.

    Firefighting
    Search Rescue
    Tug
    Survey
    deploy mines ocean

    OR take couples to remote wedding site with say 3 kin per couple?

    ALL from 1 copter source.

    Follow ons can be adapting the CH47 or HH53 copters to be Helihotels 2,3.
    Expand airframes & add more Rotors & engines or use NOTAR.
