Overview

The H125 (AS350) is a single engine, light utility helicopter designed and manufactured in France by Aérospatiale and Eurocopter, now Airbus Helicopters. It is a member of the Airbus Ecureuil family that has accumulated almost 36 million flight hours worldwide; one H125 has been in service for 41 years.

In May 2005, an AS350 B3 broke the world record for the highest-altitude landing and take off, performed on Mount Everest at 8,848 m (29,030 ft).

In the early 1970s, Aérospatiale initiated a development programme for an economic and cost-effective civil-oriented helicopter. On 27 June, 1974 the first prototype AS350C conducted its maiden flight at Marignane, France, powered by a Lycoming LTS101 turboshaft engine. It was certified by the FAA on 21 December, 1977 and deliveries began for the US market in April 1978.

The Turbomeca (later Safran Helicopter Engines) Arriel 1A-powered second prototype AS350B followed on 14 February, 1975. It was certified in France on 27 October, 1977 and deliveries to customers began in March 1978.

Over time, the AS350 rotor system, powerplants and avionics were progressively improved. On 6 February, 1987 a prototype AS350 B2 flew with a fenestron tail-rotor. French VFR certification was awarded in 1991, followed by UK and US certification in 1992 and Japanese in 1993.

The type was manufactured principally at the Marignane facility near Marseille, France until 2013. Then Eurocopter begin AS350 production and final assembly activities at its factory in Columbus, Mississippi. The first Columbus-assembled AS350 B3e received FAA certification in March 2015. In December 2014, EASA validation was issued for Airbus Helicopters China to conduct training and support activity at its facility in Shenzhen.

The design is a conventional pod-and-boom with a power plant above cabin that drives a three-blade main rotor with a Starflex rotor head. All versions now have lifting section composites main rotor blades. The main rotor turns at 394 rpm, the tail rotor at 2,086 rpm, and both are made of composite materials that are designed to minimise corrosion and maintenance requirements. It has steel tube skid landing gear.

The AS350 offers multiple cabin configurations for between four and six passengers. Large sliding doors can be fitted to either side of the cabin, which in turn can be fitted out to be rapidly reconfigured to switch between roles. It performs well in hot-and-high operations and can support aerial work, emergency medical services, law enforcement, passenger transport and private aviation. It offers 4.5 hours of endurance with standard fuel tanks, and multiple configurations regardless of mission.

Public service operators often install forward looking infrared cameras and other mission systems, and optional equipment includes real-time data links, rescue hoists, underslung cargo hooks, electrical external mirrors, search lights, tactical consoles, night vision goggle-compatibility, moving-map system, internal cabin tie-downs, second battery kit, sand filters, wire strike protection system, four-channel radio, tail rotor arch, cabin floor windows and removable seats.

The AS350 was also developed to comply with low noise requirements, and the in-cabin noise levels allow conversation during flight. It can be quickly started up and shut down, useful during emergency medical services roles. It is equipped with hydraulically-assisted flight controls that remain operational in the event of a hydraulic failure.
