On May 14, 2005 an AS350 piloted by Eurocopter test pilot Didier Delsalle touched down on the top of Mt. Everest, at 8,848 m (29,030 ft). The AStar is a common sight at heliports, hospital landing pads, police department operations centers and airports across the United States. With built-in maneuverability, super visibility and low vibration levels in the cabin, the AStar has earned its reputation as a true multi-mission workhorse. We use the Astar for heli-skiing, sight seeing, and exploring and it is the foundation of our safety-first operations.
