History

The development of the new rotorcraft focused on… production of an economic and cost-effective helicopter. Thus both Aérospatiale’s Production and Procurement departments became involved in the design. One such measure was the use of a rolled sheet structure. Furthermore… another innovation was the Starflex main rotor. It was also decided to develop both civil and military variants of the helicopter… to conform with military requirements. In June 1974, the 1st prototype, an AS350 C… powered by a Lycoming LTS101 turboshaft engine, conducted its maiden flight. The second prototype, powered by a Turbomeca Arriel 1A, followed in February 1975. Certification in France was in October 1977 for the Arriel-powered version, the AS350B. Moreover certification of the Lycoming powered AS350C followed… by the US FAA on 21 December 1977.

Design

The AS350 is a single engine helicopter, powered either by a Lycoming LTS101 or… a Turbomeca Arriel powerplant. These drive a three-blade main rotor, furnished with a Starflex rotor head. The type is well known for its high-altitude performance. The main rotors couple with the tail rotors make use of composite material… designed to minimise corrosion and maintenance requirements.

The AS350… also developed to comply with the stringent noise requirements… therefore, the in-cabin noise levels are such that passengers may converse during flight. The aircraft which starts up and shuts down quickly, is thus useful during EMS roles. It is equipped with hydraulically-assisted flight controls. Moreover in the event of hydraulic failure… these controls remain operational. Over time, the AS350 has received further development. While the aircraft’s design remains similar…. not only the rotor system and power-plants have improved… but also the avionics. Further introduced are new variants of the Arriel-powered AS350B.

The AS350 BA powered by: An Arriel 1B engine and fitted with wider chord AS355 main rotor blades and tail rotor servo.
