History

The Aérospatiale Alouette II is a light single engine helicopter. Originally manufactured by Sud Aviation and later on,  Aérospatiale. It is the first helicopter powered by a gas turbine engine… instead of the heavier piston power plant. In March 1955, the prototype SE 3130 performed its first flight. Completed in April 1956… and awarded a French domestic certificate of airworthiness… cleared the Alouette II for civil operators. On the 14th January 1958… the FAA granted certification to the Alouette II. Hence it became the first turbine powered helicopter to certified in the USA. The Alouette II SE 3130 later became known as the Alouette II SA 313B.
