France’s civil security services took delivery of their first SA 3160 Alouette III, No.1036 (F-ZBAL), from Sud Aviation on 14th June 1962. The Alouette III’s first flight (SE 3160 No. 001) took place on 28th February 1959. Liked very much for its maneuverability, enabling visual night flights, it was the ideal helicopter for surveillance and rescue operations.
