certainly true with the single-engine Bell 505 Jet Ranger X. Some specs: The 505 has a highly configurable cabin with room for five occupants, 125-plus knots maximum cruising speed, and a state-of- the-art Garmin 1000 HTM flight deck. It is aimed at the corporate and parapublic markets. This advanced single-engine rotorcraft achieved FAA certification in December 2016, with the first 505 being delivered to private operator Scott Urschel at Heli-Expo 2017. To date, Bell Helicopter has received about 400 letters of intent from clients interested in buying 505s.


Bell Helicopter also is continuing its heavy investment into the 525. This super medium twin is meant for the corporate VIP, HEMS, and parapublic markets. The 525 has space for up to 20 people, a 162 knots maximum cruise speed, and a range of 570 nautical miles.


“We continue to make progress towards getting that aircraft certified, and are basically deep into the flight testing/ certification process,” Evans said. “The 525’s capacity, advanced safety features, and fly-by-wire system have generated so much customer interest that it may exceed the 505’s sales performance over time.”


During the same slow economic period, Bell Helicopter opened a new Bell Training Academy in Fort Worth, Texas. On the military side, the company has continued its V-247 Vigilant unmanned tiltrotor and V-280 Valor manned tiltrotor programs.


Frasca Helicopter Training Device


AIR EVAC TRAINS THEIR PILOTS USING FRASCA SIMULATORS. INCLUDING THE NEW HTD.


“When we had a flight crew go IIMC back in the day, everyone was on pins and needles, waiting to hear if there was an accident. …Now, because of the use of our Frasca simulators, the thought is ‘Ok, tell them to call when they are safely on the ground and if they need a ground crew to pick them up.’ The difference is night and day.”
