Main description

Making the best even better!
The high-performance member of the Ecureuil family, the AS350 B3 outclasses all other single engine helicopters for performance, versatility, safety and competitive acquisition and maintenance costs. It excels in hot conditions and very high altitudes, and broke records when a standard production aircraft landed on the top of Mount Everest in 2005 (altitude: 29,029 ft / 8,848 m).

And the best keeps getting even better - Airbus Helicopters is taking this aircraft to a whole new level with the enhanced AS350 B3e.

    The AS350 B3e offers excellent visibility, a pilot-friendly ergonomic cockpit and exceptional endurance and speed.
