Coupled with its fuel endurance of up to 3.5 hours, it is especially suited to Search & Rescue flights over the ocean. With excellent handling, robustness and ease of maintenance, the AS355 incorporates twin-engine added reliability and performance, making it ideal for police and parapublic missions, as well as demanding operations over water, rugged terrain and urban areas. Renowned for its low operation and maintenance costs, this helicopter benefits from the reliability and safety of its two Turbomeca
Arrius 1A1 engines, and is equipped with a full authority digital engine control (FADEC) system. The lifting capability of the AS355 is 700 kg on the hook, making it suited to aerial crane operations within populous areas, with the added safety of the twin engine configuration. With the enhanced safety of the twin-engine performance, and with the capability of carrying 4 -6 passengers, the AS355 is a cost effective way to carry out charter to move staff to and from isolated work sites, or to carry out survey flights.
