Dallas Cowboys Owner, President, and General Manager Jerry Jones, leader of one of the world’s most recognizable professional sports franchises, has chosen a new, customized H145 corporate helicopter as his go-to business transportation tool. Jones decided to purchase the H145 from Airbus Helicopters Inc. of Grand Prairie, Texas after a competition with other available helicopter models.

The H145 is one of the newest and most technologically advanced models in the Airbus Helicopters product line. The helicopter will provide Jones with a fast and smooth ride in a comfortable cabin that can seat eight-to-10 passengers, depending on the configuration. With the new H145, Jones and his leadership team will be able to commute swiftly to and from the team’s he

adquarters complex at The Star, in Frisco, a suburban area north of Dallas, to AT&T Stadium in Arlington for games and other functions. Jones, his staff, and his family will be flying above the Dallas-Fort Worth region’s traffic- snarled highways and road construction projects.

“This helicopter will save us valuable time, and allow members of our organization to work and live more efficiently,” said Jones. When Jones took delivery of the new helicopter, he told Airbus Helicopters Inc. employees: “I’ve been so excited in anticipation of getting this helicopter. I see the quality and the pride that you put into it. It says Dallas Cowboys.”

With the helicopter’s ability to take off and land from nearby heliports and bypass the busy airports required by fixed wing aircraft, the H145 will enable Jones and his management team to travel swiftly and more conveniently for business. The H145’s patented Fenestron shrouded tail rotor design makes it the quietest helicopter now in production, an important attribute for passengers and the people living below.

The highly trained and experienced professionals of Airbus Helicopters Inc. installed the helicopter’s versatile, customized interior that was designed and produced to meet the Cowboys’ exact requirements. Cabin floor carpeting and other luxury features are easily removable to allow the helicopters use on work trips to Jones’ ranch.

“Jerry Jones made an outstanding choice when he selected the superb Airbus Helicopters H145 to be his aircraft and to be the official helicopter of the iconic Dallas Cowboys, America’s Team,” said Christopher Emerson, President of Airbus Helicopters Inc. “Our company has been the leader in U.S. helicopter sales for 15 consecutive years, and that is because of the commitment of our employees to not only build and support the helicopters but to take care of each customer. We’re not just selling helicopters; we’re providing a gratifying long-term experience."
