The AS355NP is the latest twin engine version of the Ecureuil family and is considered the most affordable helicopter in its category. It displays the same characteristics as the AS350, versatility, reliability, high performance sturdiness and ease of maintenance.

The 2 FADEC equipped Turbomeca ARRIUS 1A1 engines, featuring outstanding one engine inoperative performances, significantly reduces the pilot workload.

The fully IFR certified AS355NP offers high speed endurance and maneuverability with low vibration levels. Its excellent visibility and unobstructed cabin with a wide choice of interior layouts answers the most demanding corporate requirements.
