Eurocopter subsidiary Eurocopter Chile has delivered an Ecureuil AS350 B3e helicopter to Servicios Aereos Kipreos Marignane, France.

The AS350 B3e includes a more powerful Turbomeca Arriel 2D engine offering longer life cycle and lower maintenance costs, and a next-generation, full authority digital engine control.

It also includes a new control system, featuring vehicle engine multifunction display and an engine data recorder, along with improved interior design and tail rotor modifications for additional ease of piloting.

The new helicopter will be used for power line work, passenger transport, mining support, airborne laser terrain mapping, heli-skiing, load transportation, filming and firefighting activities.
