We’ve seen lots of airplanes that have been converted into hotel accommodations, but this is the first helicopter to make the transition. The folks at Helicopter Glamping in Stirling, Scotland purchased a decommissioned Sea King search and rescue chopper from the Royal Navy for only £7,000 and transported it by road to a pastoral campsite at Thornhill near Stirling.
After restoring the helicopter’s exterior, they transformed the interior space into a comfortable apartment complete with kitchen and bath. A dome and patio doors were added to admit natural light and the flight deck was kitted-out with comfy chairs.
Rental feels start at £150 per night for this unique hotel room. More information can be found at this website.
