During the 1980s, Bruno Guimbal, while working at Eurocopter on the Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin and Eurocopter EC120 Colibri helicopters, decided to independently pursue the development of a two-seat reciprocating engine helicopter. This rotorcraft would incorporate numerous safety-related and general technological advances commonly applied to larger turbine-powered rotorcraft, but typically absent from reciprocating-engine helicopters. These technologies included Eurocopter’s Fenestron anti-torque shrouded tail rotor and Spheriflex main rotor, in addition to a composite fuselage.
