The best keeps getting even better – Eurocopter has taken this aircraft to a whole new level with the enhanced AS350 B3e.
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).
AS350 B3eThe AS350 B3e is powered with a new Turbomeca Arriel 2D engine including a new generation dual digital engine control system (FADEC), backed up with one independent control system for automatic start-up sequences and care-free engine handling. This modern engine has an increased reliability and decreased maintenance costs and is fitted with an Engine Data Recorder. The AS350 B3e offers a new elegant cabin, increasing passenger comfort. Thanks to its versatile flat floored cabin, the AS350 B3e can be quickly and easily reconfigured for all types of missions, from utility and heavy load transportation to medical evacuation, Search and Rescue, law enforcement and passenger transportation.
We have already started using the helicopter on mine support and surveillance flying, under slung load work and passenger transfers.
