Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The A rospatiale SA 360 Dauphin was a single-engine French utility helicopter developed as a replacement for A rospatiale's Alouette III and was to be called the "Business Alouette," in the early 1970s and to fill a gap in the company's product line in the six to ten-seat helicopter category. In fact, the new helicopter offered little advantage over its predecessor and production was cancelled after only a few dozen of them had been built. However, a twin-engine derivative, the Dauphin 2 went on to become a great success and is still in production in 2007, after some 30 years. Perhaps confusingly, after the merger of A rospatiale's helicopter division into Eurocopter in 1992, the Dauphin 2 designation was dropped, and Eurocopter-built Dauphin 2s are simply referred to as "Dauphin." The retronym "Dauphin 1" is sometimes applied to the original Dauphin.show more
