The Airbus Helicopters AS355 (aka Twin Squirrel) is a twin-engine light helicopter capable of transporting up to six passengers. With a maximum range of approximately 700km (435 miles) it is an ideal choice for journeys of short and longer distances, it can also be used to land in relatively built up areas with it being a twin engine aircraft.

We have sourced the AS355 for varying types of private charter such as business flights, pleasure/sightseeing flights and wedding helicopter charters. Twin engine aircraft are usually more expensive to charter than their single engine counterparts but are essential for journeys for larger groups or those needing to land in areas unsuitable for single engine helicopters.
