Didier Delsalle: Reaching the Peak

We are delving into the fascinating world of Airbus Helicopters and our guide for this episode has been with the company for over 30 years.

Didier Delsalle is an experimental test pilot, who spends his days pushing the limits of aviation technology. He is known for being the first and only person to land a helicopter, the Eurocopter AS350 Squirrel, on the world's highest mountain, Everest, back in 2005. He has accumulated over 10,000 hours in the air and has flown about every helicopter in the Airbus world.

"As a prototype test pilot, you are always working with the latest technology. Even to the very last day, you want to see new systems or to fly new helicopters. Even to the very last day, you are still at the top."
