AS350 B3e - On the top of Pico de Orizaba

An Airbus Helicopters AS350 B3e helicopter achieved a new record in Mexican aviation history today by landing on the country's highest peak, the 5,610-meter-high Pico de Orizaba (also known as Citlaltépetl).

The historic landing coordinated with the Mexican Civil Aviation Authority (DGAC) and undertaken in accordance with international operating standards underscores the extraordinary power and reliability of an aircraft capable of operating at extreme altitudes and temperatures.
This is the same model that set a new world record in 2005 by landing and taking off from the summit of Mount Everest.
