Not a lot of people are aware of this but there are European helicopters, more precisely French helicopters, begin marketed and sold inside the United States. I’m mentioning this as a public service announcement of sorts because we sometimes use European model numbers and it confuses people. Now I’ll have this post as a reference point in the future.
European helicopters in the US
European helicopters that are being sold in the United states include copters from Airbus Helicopters, formerly known as Eurocopter. Airbus, the famous airplane manufacturer has int he recent years purchased Eurocopter and added the company to its brand.
In United States these helicopters are being sold under the name Twin Star or Twin Squirrel. Several different models are available, the most famous one being Airbus Helicopters AS355 (Twin Squirrel). These are small twin-engine utility helicopters that are very cheap. New they come in at around 2-3 million dollars. However used they can be bought for a lot less. We have a couple of these in queue for sale. One is currently offered on our “For Sale” page. Check it out and call for price if you’re interested.
