As to the Helio altitude records, when the High Altitude Physiology Study, (HAPS) was taking place in the Southwest corner of the Yukon, the H295 was chosen as the aircraft for the work.  The intended use was to land at the altitude of 18000' for camp support. While the pilots were flying in the area it was not uncommon to fly up to the altitude of 25,000'.  They then used the H295 and H395 extensively landing at the high altitude camp which was at 17,500' for the following 15 years.

I did not cut the first part because it is still a slotted plane !

The twin is at the 30 seconds
