There are also big fleets of French-built Alouette II and III and Gazelle and Super Frelons dating back almost 30 years which are due for replacement.TurbineLesser competitors in the fray are US manufacturer Enstrom's piston and turbine machines and Schweitzer's S330, initially in piston and now in turbine form.
