We've tried a number of other helicopter charters and transfers but based on price and customer service, I'd opt for Whitetracks Helicopters every time
The Eurocopter AS350 series - 'Ecureuil' or 'Squirrel' - is Europe's highest acclaimed helicopter and the one that performs approximately 75% of all our passenger flights across the French and Swiss Alps. The 350's manoeuvrability and superior visibility means your journey will be as comfortable as it is productive. All seats in the passenger cabin face forward for optimum view of vision.
The AS350 B2 and B3 are the 'high performance' versions of the range and both have a proven track record. AS350 helicopters are suited for operations in conditions such as mountainous areas or hot countries. Their flexibility and low acquisition cost have made them very sought after helicopters to perform a wide range of demanding missions, from passenger transport, aerial work, fire fighting and mountain rescue.
For ski transfers; helicopter airport transfers to and from ski resorts where you will be travelling with what could be considered quite a substantial amount of luggage the AS350 is considered to be the best helicopter to perform the mission. Apart from it being the most cost effective helicopter it is also the helicopter that has the best luggage capacity especially with its attached utility basket for the carriage of skis, snowboards and boots.
The single engine AS350 Ecureuil is renowned for its high performance, its safety, its reduced operating costs and low vibration level so it is no wonder it is Europe's most successful helicopter!
The AS350's seats all face forward allowing good visibility. There are 4 passenger seats all in a row in the back with 1 or 2 passenger seats in the front next to the pilot in the cockpit.
Please note: When carrying 6 passengers there is a combined weight limit of 140kg on the front bench seat for 2 people.
