Bell has received certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China for the 505 Jet Ranger X. The country is anticipating deliveries of more than 110 aircraft.
The 505 Jet Ranger X is in ongoing demo tours in Asia, Europe, North America and Latin America. It incorporates the familiarity of the Jet Ranger with new advanced avionics technology. It is integrated with a flat floor and open cabin that is configurable for a wide variety of missions and payloads.
The cabin can accommodate four passengers for corporate travel or be configured for internal cargo missions by removing the cabin seats. The features of the Bell 505 such as the reliable drivetrain and rotor system allow it to be a true multi-mission aircraft in the short light single-engine market.
