Ultimate HELI – Antarctica expedition 2015

We are proud to announce that we will be operating an Airbus helicopter AS350B3 during the summer season in Antarctica from January to April 2015. The Airbus Helicopter AS350B3 “Squirrel” is a single-engine light helicopter originally designed and manufactured in France by Aérospatiale (now Airbus Helicopters).

The helicopter and crew departed from Cape Town harbor on a scientific research vessel in early January and are expected back mid April.

The helicopter will be used for scientific research purposes around the Northern and Eastern Antarctica mainland.
