Bell Says Its 505 Will Get New Type Certificate

By Staff Writer | June 8, 2015

Bell Helicopter’s 505 light single will enter the market under a new type certificate, the company tells Rotor & Wing International, rather than piggybacking on the 206 JetRanger type certificate, which was first issued in 1964. The 505 will use the transmission, rotor hub and rotor blades from the 206L-4 LongRanger, it adds, but those components will be certified to the latest amendment of Federal Aviation Regulation Part 27. The L-4 was certificated in 1992.
