The single engine AS350B3 Ecureuil is renowned for its high performance, its safety and reduced operating costs. This helicopter, powered with a Turbomeca Arriel engine, this helicopter has a proven track record. As the world altitude record holder for helicopters, its flexibility and low acquisition cost has made it a very sought-after helicopter to perform a wide range of missions (passenger transport, aerial work, fire-fighting etc). Its design calls for widespread use of composite materials (airframe, "Starflex™ "main rotor head, main blades, beam type tail rotor, etc.).

The Ecureuil, also known as the ASTAR, is an excellent utility helicopter, able to carry under-slung loads of up to 1,400kg. Due to its high useful payload and short configuration time this helicopter is well suited to work requiring a variety of equipment, from medical transport to police missions.
