Bell 505 Receives Certification in China


Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, recently received certification for the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X from the Civil Aviation Administration of China. This is a major milestone for the international expansion of the Bell 505, as anticipation is growing in-country to receive the deliveries of over 110 aircraft. “We are thrilled to receive this certification in one of the fastest growing markets for the Bell 505,” said Patrick Moulay, senior vice president of Bell Commercial Business – International. “This achievement marks the Bell 505’s continued international success and broadens its global presence.”


The Bell 505 Jet Ranger X is already demonstrating excellent performance with customers all over the world and with ongoing demo tours in Asia, Europe, North America, and Latin America. It incorporates the familiarity of the Jet Ranger family with new advanced avionics technology. Its reliability, speed, performance


and maneuverability are integrated with a flat floor and open cabin that is configurable for a wide variety of missions and payloads. The spacious cabin can accommodate four passengers for corporate travel or be configured for internal cargo missions by removing quick disconnect cabin seats. Along with a reliable drivetrain and rotor system, these features make the Bell 505 a true multi-mission aircraft in the short, light, single-engine market.


Airbus to Offer H135 for U.S. Navy Helicopter Trainer Replacement


Airbus Helicopters Inc. recently announced the Airbus H135 helicopter as the solution for the U.S. Navy’s planned helicopter trainer replacement program. An H135 demonstrator aircraft in Navy trainer markings is on display this week at the 2018 Naval Helicopter Association Symposium in Norfolk, Virginia.


“The H135 is a market leading twin-engine, multi-mission helicopter performing the primary training mission for some of the finest militaries in the world,” said Chris Emerson, president of Airbus Helicopters Inc. and head of the North America Region.


Airbus Helicopters is the global leader in rotorcraft technology, offering a full range of modern and affordable training helicopters that have been proven in the U.S. and around the globe. The U.S. Army operates Airbus Helicopters’ twin-engine UH-72A


Lakota as its initial entry rotary-wing trainer at Fort Rucker, Alabama.


“When paired with Airbus’ unrivaled support for the lifetime of the airframe, the H135 is the right solution both technically and economically for the U.S. Navy,” Emerson said. “As a twin-engine helicopter, the H135 provides a training environment most similar to the Navy’s warfighting rotorcraft fleet, creating opportunities for cost and operational synergies compared to a single-engine trainer.”


The H135 is the rotorcraft of choice for military pilot training due to its maneuverability, high visibility, and low


vibration levels. The aircraft is equipped with the most advanced technologies available, providing instructor pilots with an ideal platform for training missions for the U.S. Navy.


One of the safest aircraft in its class, the H135 is fitted with a glass cockpit, a crash- resistant fuel system, energy absorbing seats, fuselage, and landing gear. The H135 has a proven record of unrivaled operational costs as a result of continuous technological improvements. The H135 is the preeminent military training helicopter in the world, currently providing pilot training for military pilots in more than 13 countries around the world.
