The Bell 505 Jet Ranger X has added EASA certification to its approvals from the USA, Australia, Chile, Guatemala, Indonesia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, South Korea, Argentina and Japan.
“The first aircraft in the [European] region is scheduled to be delivered at the beginning of 2018,” said Glenn Isbell, executive vice president of customer support and services at Bell Helicopter.
The Bell 505 can be configured for various missions. Its flat-floor cabin can accommodate up to four passengers, or the quick-disconnect rear cabin seats and/or co-pilot seat can be removed for cargo missions.
“Our mission with the Bell 505 was to reclaim the short single light market while honoring the Jet Ranger legacy, and the phenomenal customer response is evidence we are on track,” said Patrick Moulay, executive vice president of commercial sales and marketing at Bell Helicopter.
