What Squirrels can do

Recommended Posts

... just because they can!

Some variants have no trouble popping up to 15,000 ft and more... perfect for a little heli-skiing!

Great shots! That's an amazing altitude for a chopper.

Thanks! It gets a little mushy at that altitude,and credit to the FDE for making it so.

 

A Squirrel actually holds the absolute altitude record for rotary wings:

World Altitude record by Helicopter – 42,500Ft About thirty years after the record set by Jean Boulet on a SA315 B “Lama” helicopter, Fred North, professional pilot, takes an AS 350 B2 “Squirrel” to the fantastic altitude of 12954 m.

(Thanks Wiki)
