Airbus AS350


Airbus H130

Wide-body variant of the AS350 family. Airframes built before January 1st, 2014 listed as Eurocopter EC130T2. Renamed H130 in 2015.

Contrary to the majority of helicopters, the EC130 / H130 family is usually left side piloted due to tour/sightseeing operations which is its main role. It maximizes space available for paying passengers and eliminates the danger that a passenger could inadvertently move the collective stick.
