Title: Aerospatiale Alouette II

The Alouette II was originally developed by Sud Aviation (Sud-Est until 1957) and first flew in 1955. When it entered service in 1957 it was the first production helicopter powered by a gas turbine engine rather than the heavier piston engines.

It was a popular helicopter and widely used by both civil and military operators, with over 1,300 being manufactured between 1957 and 1975.

This title contains the manufacturer’s flight manual for the earlier Artouste powered SE3130 Alouette II, plus the Luftwaffe Flight Manual (in German) for the later Astazou powered SA318 Alouette II plus a nice manufacturer’s brochure for the earlier variant. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
