Backed by experience and a long heritage
Speed and stability in extreme conditions
The AS365 N3+ is powered by 2 FADEC-equipped Safran Arriel 2C engines offering 15 percent more power, matched with an upgraded gearbox and rotor head.
This ultimate version of the Dauphin offers exceptional high and hot performance, increased useful load and lower operating costs.
Not only can the AS365 N3+ take off in ground effect at maximum weight and in temperatures of up to +50°C, it is also capable of taking off with a full load from sea level in Category A conditions.
Safe and comfortable flight
The AS365 N3+ incorporates Airbus’ Fenestron® tail rotor system and Starflex rotor head for low noise and maximum safety.
The quietest helicopter in its category, the AS365 N3+ is rated at 3.1 EPN decibels below the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.
The cabin accommodates up to 12 passengers and 2 pilots and is easily accessible via large forward doors. Big windows offer panoramic views.
Easy and affordable maintenance
Operators recognise mission availability as being one of the key attributes of this aircraft. Thanks to low direct maintenance costs (DMCs) and low maintenance per flight hour, the AS365 N3+ is the most cost-effective helicopter in its class on the market.
