ECUREUIL AS350 : introduction


The AS350 is a single-turbine light utility helicopter developed by Eurocopter and now part of the Airbus Helicopters fleet.


AS350 plan


This type of air transport is often multi-range. It can be used by professional pilots or private pilots just out of flight school to give first flights. Helicopter piloting is a complicated profession.

Indeed, the qualifications required for a helicopter tour are quite demanding, requiring many hours of flight to master take-off and propeller control. Pilots also need to pay close attention to maximum weight, to ensure that the turbines are not overloaded, as they cannot withstand hovering for several minutes at a time.

Helicopter flying is highly regulated and supervised by the French civil security authorities. It is therefore imperative to meet all technical standards, and to consider refueling when necessary.

Ecureuil AS350: technical characteristics


The ECUREUIL AS350 helicopter is a versatile, single-engine light utility helicopter with a wide, open cabin that, depending on the model chartered, can comfortably accommodate up to 6 passengers. The helicopter has a range of up to 500 km. The cabin configuration is versatile and can be adapted to suit individual needs meaning that the Eurocopter AS350 is the perfect aircraft for a wide variety of tasks including passenger or VIP transport.

This aircraft is one that our pilots recommend to our varied client base on a regular basis. It is particularly appreciated by clients who are keeping to a budget. The ECUREUIL AS350 helicopter is a versatile and robust helicopter that our pilots have a great deal of experience handling; it is perfectly adapted to a range of tasks from tourism, filming and aerial work to mountain drops, site visits, events and rescue missions.

  • Cost: AS350 rental is affordable for this type of service. The price, depending on demand, is around €3,000/hour.
