When Experience
Meets Excellence

The AS365 N3+ belongs to the Dauphin family, which is well known for its unique design.
This medium helicopter has proven its ability to perform any kind of mission, anywhere in the world. It even excels in the most severe climatic conditions, such as high altitudes or hot temperatures. The standard AS365 N3+ is fitted with the unique Airbus Helicopters 4-axis autopilot to ease crew workload and help simplify the most demanding missions, including Search and Rescue (SAR).

Technology

TechnologyTechnical advancements developed by Airbus Helicopters on the AS365 N3+ include a modular design of the mechanical assemblies, use of composite materials (i.e. Starflex® rotor head, blades, airframe, etc.) and use of the latest generation of avionics.

The AS365 N3+ also incorporates cutting-edge technologies and the all-composite Fenestron® tail rotor which features high maneuverability, low external sound level and optimal safety for passengers and ground personnel.
