FSX/FS2004 Aerospatiale AS.350 Ecureuil, KTM, OE-XKM
The AS.350 was developed by Aerospatiale in the early 1970s, an Avco Lycoming powered prototype first flying on 27 June 1974, followed by a Turbomeca Arriel version on 14 February 1975.

As a big fan of the differences in aircraft (it’s what makes aviation so fun for me) this brilliant mod finally let me try out something I’ve always wanted to fly with; an Aerospatiale AS.350 Ecureuil. This is an aircraft that feels really fun to fly whilst having a bit of a unique twist to it, thanks to the hard work and commitment of the people who created it.
This aircraft is pretty old now, having been formed in the 70s, and in that time it has become a powered prototype which offers something new, interesting and unique to the table. Whilst it was replaced relatively quickly by the Turbomeca Arriel, it was an impressive piece of kit that was loved for a short period of time.
This was, though, one of the most successful civil choppers in European history and was very popular in overseas market. It would appear the fact that it was replaced is not such a big deal!
So, what makes this so fun to fly?
For a start, it flies the way that it should; a dream. This aircraft was beloved for the hard work that it introduces to the table whilst also the ease of flight that it was renowned for. For virtual pilots you’ll get to enjoy all of these benefits as, in my opinion, it was one of the easiest aircraft to start flying around with. I really found that it was quite nimble in the skies, offering a solid level of agility whilst giving a really nice and fair level of consistency throughout.
However, the detail in the design is absolutely imperious. It looks brilliant, in my opinion. The striking color of the design is matched only by the excellent level of detail that it gives off, creating a helicopter design that is really easy on the eyes – and on the mind. It’s easy to control via a simple and effective cockpit and the attention to detail from the developers really is something to behold.
I would quite happily recommend flying this aircraft in the future to any helicopter enthusiasts out there or indeed to anyone who wants to enjoy a comfortable, fun flight. If you want to take on something a little different to the norm then this is very much a good place to get started from given its increasingly enjoyable ease of use.
