Can a helicopter fly to the top of Kilimanjaro?

Yes, in a nutshell, however it all depends on the type of helicopter and the crew’s ability. The performance of the Airbus AS350 B3/B3e has been shown by flying to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. The performance of the airplane on top of the mountain is also determined by factors such as weather and passenger/crew weight. While the AS350 has been tested to land on the peak of Mount Everest by Capt. Didier Delsalle, no helicopter has landed at the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro. There are many helicopters stationed at various camps on Mt. Kilimanjaro for emergency evacuation but none at the summit. You may do a fly-by for a magnificent tour of Kilimanjaro from the summit and enjoy an incredible sight-seeing experience.
