The H125 (previously designated the AS350 B3e) outclasses all other single-engine helicopters for performance, versatility, low maintenance, and low acquisition costs, while also excelling in high-and-hot and extreme environments. It is a member of Airbus’ Ecureuil family, which has accumulated 38 million flight hours worldwide.

Backed by experience and a long heritage

The H125 is a member of Airbus’ rugged and proven Ecureuil family. Over 7,000 members of the Ecureuil family (AS350, AS355, AS550, AS555, H125, H125M, EC130, H130) have been delivered in 133 countries to more than 2,500 operators. Together, these rotorcraft have accumulated 38 million flight hours. The H125 continues as the undisputed leader in its class for 30 years.

Some 4,100 rotorcraft in this series currently are in service worldwide (of which more than 1,300 are the H125/AS350 B3e versions), and they primarily are used for high-performance missions in high and hot conditions.

The H125-series helicopters have broken world records throughout their career. In 2005, the AS350 B3 set the world record for the highest-altitude landing and takeoff, performed on Mount Everest at 8,848 metres (29,029 feet) – a title still held today. In May 2013, the AS350 B3 performed the world's highest long-line rescue operation on Lhotse, the world's fourth-highest mountain, located in the Himalayas at 7,800 metres (25,590 feet).
