Airbus Helicopters AS350 B2
The "Ecureuil" family was created in the 70s by the French manufacturer Aerospatiale (later Eurocopter, now Airbus Helicopters) and enjoys great popularity today. The helicopters are used worldwide for a variety of missions and show their strengths, especially in difficult tasks in the high mountains. To date, the "Ecureuil" is the only helicopter ever to land on the summit of Mount Everest. The variant AS350 B2 is less powerful than the variant H125, but offers a nearly unbeatable price / performance ratio, which makes it very interesting for passenger transport and filming flights. At Mountainflyers, the helicopter, which offers space for five passengers next to the pilot, is used for sightseeing and and taxi flights, filming flights and pilot training.
