The A.105 small helicopter was designed from the start to simplify the manufacturing process and was powered by a Turbomeca-Agusta TA-230 turbine engine developing 350shp. The design also incorporated an Agusta-designed transmission.
First flown in April 1964 the A.105 was built in two models - the A.105 two-seater and the A.105B four-seat variant. Cruising speed was around 210kph with a range of 320km. The four-seat variant, the A.105B, was displayed at the 1965 Paris Air Show. It had the same mechanical and structural parts as the two-seater, but a bigger cabin.
Both helicopters never progressed beyond the prototype stage.
