The Aérospatiale Alouette II (company designations SA 313 or SA 318) is a light helicopter originally produced by Sud Aviation, later taken over by Aérospatiale. The Alouette II was designed based on a pre-existing project, the SE 3120 Alouette, which was a promising design, however deemed way too complex to become successful in the market. The Alouette II was installed with a Turbomeca Artouste turbine-engine, becoming the first rotorcraft powered by a gas turbine powerplant, as opposed to the more heavy piston engine, even achieving a new altitude record in the light helicopter category. The Alouette II became popular in military operations, these including observation and air-sea rescue, photography, liaison and training.
