With its wide, unobstructed 5 passenger seating cabin and its high cruising speed, range and payload, the AS350-B3 can carry more passengers on more round-trips per day than any other helicopter in its class. The helicopter has been designed to provide its occupants with the highest level of comfort.

In addition to the low vibration level, the passengers will appreciate the feeling of spaciousness and the panoramic view offered by the large windows.
