The Alouette III is a multipurpose helicopter built in France. Since 1967, it has been made use of as a light transport and liaison helicopter for the Austrian Armed Forces. They are also used for basic training when it comes to training new helicopter pilots. The plan is to have the dependable work helicopter continue to be used by Austria’s Armed Forces until 2023. Christian Erhart had the honor of designing one of these helicopters for the “Airpower16“ and, even more importantly, as part of the 50th anniversary of „Alouette III in Austria“.
