Eurocopter AS355 Twin Squirrel

The AS355 was developed onward from the AS350 Single Squirrel and whilst looks very similar provides two gas turbine engines. The AS355 is a very powerful helicopter allowing a large lifting capacity.

The AS355 is also utilised as a survey helicopter on motorways, railways and pipeline work. With its second engine the aircraft also has the capability of operating at lower levels than single engine helicopters so the AS355 is often the chosen helicopter for filming and photographic work when operating over congested / built up areas.
