During the 1980s, there was interest within Aerospatiale… to further develop their successful AS350 B3 rotorcraft. This type was originally developed in the early 1970s. On 6 February 1987, a prototype AS350 Z… a modified model of AS350 B2… conducted its first flight with a fenestron tail-rotor fitted. The AS350 Z test program stretched across several years. The aircraft received additional modifications such as a new air intake… based on the Eurocopter EC120. The AS350 Z contributed to the overall development of the fenestron tail rotor. In the early 1990s, development of the new rotorcraft continued under Eurocopter. On 24 June 1999, the first prototype EC130 performed its first flight. The EC130 B4 was the initial launch model of the type and the upgrade variant being EC130 T2.  Launched and produced by the Eurocopter Group and later rebranded as Airbus Helicopters. The prinicipal aim of the EC130 if for commercial passenger transportation operators, such as aerial tour companies
