The Dauphin is known by its distinctive shape, with the heli- copter’s nose recalling the form of a dolphin – the mammal after which its French name is derived. Since the 1970s, Dauphins have been in service with some 300 customers in 69 countries, accumulating a com- bined total of more than 5.1 million flight hours. These hel- icopters are used in a full range of operations on land and at sea, earning a reputation for mission capability, cost-effec- tiveness, ease of operation and flight safety. Since 1981, the Dauphin also has been available in the AS565 Panther military version.
