"Originally designed for alpine rescue and humanitarian relief, the SuperVolito has since found its true calling as this year's must-have trinket for the high-T exec with a fetish for military hardware. There's no more convenient way to hop between meetings during a busy rush hour, particularly since we've gutted all the 'functional' components and installed web access, a champagne cooler and enough room for two corporate shills in the back."
Elitás Travel description.

The Buckingham SuperVolito is a helicopter featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Executives and Other Criminals update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The SuperVolito takes a large amount of inspiration from the Eurocopter EC145, especially in the rear quarter, tail boom, rear stabilisers and fins.

The SuperVolito is a luxury vehicle that features a narrow nose, large windscreens with tinted side windows and a set of sliding doors for access to the rear compartment. Its tail features a set of vertical fins mounted on the horizontal stabilisers, similar to the Valkyrie.

The SuperVolito has a primary colour for the engine compartment and part of the rear section, as well as a secondary colour for the front section, part of the sides, tail boom and skids. The side profiling appears to be finished in carbon fibre. By default, it spawns in a brilliant white primary with a blue secondary.

Similar to the Swift Deluxe, the interior is fitted with luxury equipment, such as a TV screen, surround sound, leather seating and a coffee machine. Passengers can drink champagne and browse the internet within the helicopter, instead of using the Mobile Phone. There is also a small gap allowing the players in the rear to see the pilot.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

The SuperVolito is generally agile and handles very well. Although not as versatile as the Buzzard, it generally handles very well compared to other larger luxury helicopters like the Swift and the Volatus, apart that the skids offers general stability on landings. However, like any aircraft, it is rather susceptible to gunfire, especially for the occupants, since the windows are rather large. Back occupants can fire their Light Machine Guns out of the windows.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be purchased from Elitás Travel for $2,113,000.
    • It is classed as a Small vehicle when stored in a hangar.
  • Can be requested as a VIP/CEO Vehicle for $10,000 (or free if owned). It will always spawn with a matte black and dark red finish.
  • When playing as CEO, the player can request a Supervolito to pick them up through Securoserv for $5,000 with the Luxury Helicopter ability, which might spawn a Volatus instead. It is similar to the Merryweather Helicopter pickup service, but can also instantly travel to any of the player-owned Special Cargo warehouses, Import/Export warehouses, or office.
  • May appear as a vehicle the player can use to chase the croupier in the Casino Work mission "Severance". Provided the mission is still active, it won't despawn even if the player kills the croupier before he reaches his getaway vehicle, so one can still get the helicopter from its corresponding location (by dealing with the guards first) and taking it to deliver the bag. After completing the mission, the SuperVolito will be there. It cannot be stored in a hangar, though.

Trivia

General

  • Volito is a Latin term related to the word "fly" or "hover", referencing the capabilities of a helicopter.
    • SuperVolito maybe a reference to the slang "superfly", which means an ostentatious, self-confident person, especially a black drug dealer.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The description of being "Originally designed for alpine rescue and humanitarian relief" refers to the most common usage of the EC145 (the real-life helicopter that inspired the SuperVolito) as a rescue helicopter, as well as other non-civilian duties. The fact that they "gutted all the 'functional' components" suggests it was originally a helicopter purposed for an unspecified duty.
  • The player is automatically placed out of passive mode upon entering this vehicle, similar to the Luxor Deluxe and Swift Deluxe.
  • Similar to the aforementioned Deluxe vehicles, the player can also hold down "Enter Vehicle" button to enter the rear compartment. Here, they can drink champagne and browse the internet.
