Eurocopter AS350 B3eEurocopter UK has delivered the first example and latest version of the AS350 to a customer in the UK.

The AS350B3e, the newest version of Eurocopter’s successful Ecureuil family, is the latest addition to the UK’s important single engine helicopter fleet in private/business aviation.

“We are very proud to add Loxwood Holdings and the new AS350Be to our Eurocopter family in the UK”, says Markus Steinke, managing director of Eurocopter UK Limited.” We are mindful that our customers have a wide choice of single helicopters these days, but we are also aware that besides the pure product, the scope, quality and proximity of through life support has become a more important issue, than in the past, for these customers – and with the capability of Britain’s Civil Helicopter Hub here at Oxford we offer a comprehensive solution, unmatched by any other OEM.”

“Having owned other new helicopters before, but never a Eurocopter product, I did a lot of personal research and benchmarking before contacting Eurocopter UK at Oxford. Since then I am delighted with the whole experience; the staff I have been involved with, the product, the passion from their people here and back in France, the full, locally available OEM support which is quite unique, compared to what I have been facing in the past says Mr Holland of Loxwood Holdings.

Currently, around 5,350 Ecureuils have been delivered in 130 countries to some 1,600 operators.
