Bell 505 Jet Ranger X

Bell 505

Bell 505 is the latest generation light turbine helicopter. The helicopter is powered by the Safran Helicopter Engines (HE) Arrius 2R engine, the first in its class to feature a dual-channel FADEC engine control system, delivering exceptional performance that allows the helicopter to reach a maximum cruising speed of 125 knots (232 km / h). The Bell 505, also the first in its class, has the integrated Garmin G1000H NXi avionics system, providing an unparalleled flight experience by significantly reducing the pilot workload. The Garmin G1000H NXi system includes two 10.4-inch (26.4 cm) displays that provide an instant overview of the most important flight parameters, increasing crew safety and situational awareness.

Reliability, speed, efficiency and maneuverability of the Bell 505 helicopter are integrated into an open, customizable cabin, allowing you to undertake a wide variety of missions and cargo transportation thanks to the completely flat floor. The helicopter spacious interior can be personalized to carry up to 4 passengers and a pilot or to carry cargo by quickly removing the rear seats and the co-pilot/front passenger. Passenger comfort is ensured by a quiet and vibration-insulated cabin that offers plenty of legroom and headroom. 

The large double doors located on the left side of the helicopter open to a width of 55 inches (140 cm) to make it easy to get in and out of the helicopter. Large windows provide excellent visibility for passengers and increase flight safety, allowing the crew a better view of the helicopter surroundings. These features, combined with a proven and reliable power transmission system, make the Bell 505 helicopter the multi-purpose leader in the light single-engine helicopter market.
