The Eurocopter AS350 Écureuil, now manufactured by Airbus Helicopters, is a single-engine light utility helicopter. Originating from the design and production efforts of Aérospatiale and Eurocopter, this rotorcraft emerged as a response to the demand for a civil-oriented aircraft in the 1970s. Aérospatiale embarked on developing an economical and affordable helicopter with cost-effective production and maintenance, following the less-than-expected sales of their Gazelle aircraft in the commercial market. The AS350 prototype took to the skies in 1974, featuring enhanced controllability and a higher gross weight in subsequent variants like the AS350 B2.
