AS350 (ASTAR) – (Aerospatiale/Eurocopter/Airbus)

New-Sense Geophysics speciality is conducting surveys in mountainous and high-altitude terrain. These surveys have been made possible by use of the Eurocopter/Airbus AS350 Helicopter, specifically the AS350 B3 variant, setting new standards for performance, versatility, and safety.

Unleashing the Power of AS350:

  1. Certified Excellence: New-Sense Geophysics holds the key to unparalleled aerial surveys with our AS350 helicopter. Our STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) for stinger boom mounts is certified by Transport Canada (TC), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). This certification extends across a spectrum of AS350 variants, including BA, B1, B2, B3, D, D1, and E, ensuring comprehensive coverage for our survey operations.
  2. Performance Beyond Boundaries: The AS350 B3 is not just a helicopter; it’s a high-performance single engine helicopter designed to conquer diverse terrains. With remarkable speed and autonomy, our surveys become efficient and safe, even in remote locations far from landing bases. The AS350 B3 stands out as a workhorse in high-altitude and steep mountainous terrains, boasting a service ceiling over 16,500ft/5000m.
  3. Versatility Redefined: Hovering in ground effect over 13,300ft/4,000m and hovering out of ground effect over 11,000ft/3380m, the AS350 B3 showcases unparalleled versatility. From the Andes through Chile, Argentina, and Peru to the Rockies in the US and Canada, this platform becomes the safest and best choice for geophysical operations.
  4. Record-Breaking Altitude: The AS350 B3, a high-performance member of the Ecureuil family, holds the distinction of breaking records. In 2005, a standard production aircraft landed on the top of Mount Everest, showcasing its capability to thrive in extreme conditions at an altitude of 29,029 ft / 8,848 m.
