Eurocopter was founded in 1992 in France. It was a merge of two already existing companies: the national industrial aerospace company and the German company, Deutsche Aerospace. Both initiatives were intended to meet the military needs of each country without ever depending on the United States.
Since 2016, the company has been called Airbus Helicopters and has around 20,000 employees worldwide. It largely dominates the helicopter market, both civil and military.
The priority of Airbus Helicopters is to ensure the safety of pilots and passengers who, in total, spend more than 3 million hours in flight in its helicopters. Airbus Helicopters is also by far the most innovative player in the sector. Its helicopters regularly break records.
The company's head office is now located in Marignane (PACA region) and is an exceptional driving force for the region. On Wingly, you'll be able to find flights in the AS350 Ecureuil.
