AS 350 B3 Ecureuil

Our helicopter fleet

Our fleet is made up of two Ecureuil AS 350 B3 helicopters aimed at carrying out passenger transport, panoramic flights and aerial work. Depending on the needs, specific approved and certified equipment is used.

Ecureuil AS 350 B3 is one of the most modern and versatile helicopters with a cruising speed of 250 km/h. It can easily switch from a comfortable passenger transport set-up to an efficient aerial work set-up. It is also able to lift and carry external loads on the barycentric hook and is an excellent ally for aerial photo-cinematographic shots.

It is powered by a Turbomeca Arriel 2B1 turbine that develops a power of 632 kw (860 ch) and is equipped with a two-channel FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control) system. To control the turbine parameters the pilot benefits from a VEMD (Vehicle and Engine Multifunction Display) system, a new generation of instrumentation integrated on LCD screens.

At around 185 km/h it has exhaust emission values lower than a light truck at 60 km/h.
