Argentine Ministry of Defense (MoD) will purchase 12 Airbus H125 Ecureuil Helicopters.
The Argentine MoD has issued order for 12 Airbus H125 Ecureuil helicopters. These will replace Air-Force and Army Aviation aging fleets of SA-315B Lama helicopters.
The H125 (previously named the AS350) outclasses all other single-engine helicopters for performance, versatility, safety, low maintenance, and low acquisition costs, while exceling in high & hot and extreme environments. In 2005, the AS350 B3 version broke the world record for the highest-altitude landing and takeoff, performed on Mount Everest at 8,850 meters (29,035 feet) – a title still held today.
