Airbus AS 355

When Performance Meets Affordability

With excellent handling, robustness and ease of maintenance, the AS355 NP 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.
