For Bell Helicopter, The Bell 206L is mission accomplished
For the better part of the last four decades, one helicopter model has dominated the Bell fleet: the five-seater Bell Jetranger.
Rugged and Reliable. And it corners with the best safety record of any helicopter in the industry. No wonder it is the most popular turbine helicopter ever built.
Jetrangers have set numerous distance records, including several around the world flights.
The Jetranger has the lowest overall accident rate of any major single-engine turbine helicopter and Jetrangers consistently ranks tops among helicopter manufacturers.
Some features of the Bell JetRanger are: Superior auto-rotational characteristics, robust cabin structure, collective mounted throttle, rupture resistant fuel cells.
The 206B has best safety record in its class, the best auto-rotational characteristics of any helicopter flying today. It is simply the most reliable, survivable, supportable, mission capable helicopter.
We operate an authentic Vietnam-era Huey that has flown three tours in Vietnam and has been restored to its original condition.
Our Huey is licensed by the South African Civil Aviation Authority to carry 9 passengers at a time, and is the only Huey in the World licensed to carry passengers.
The Bell UH-1 (nicknamed “Huey”) is a utility military helicopter powered by a single turbo shaft engine, with two-bladed main and trial rotors.
The Huey was the workhorse of the Vietnam War. When you see helicopters in a Vietnam War Movie, you’re looking at a Huey.
The R44 has been the world’s best-selling general aviation (GA) helicopter every year since 1999. It is the most-produced GA aircraft of the 21st century, with 5,805 deliveries from 2000-2007.
The Robinson R44 is a four-seat light helicopter produced by Robinson Helicopter Company since 1992.
The R44 series provides excellent reliability, responsive handling and altitude performance.
Robinson’s center positioned teetering T-bar cyclic makes it easier to enter and exit the cockpit.
A powder coated steel-tube structure gives the R44 a rigid yet lightweight air frame, while the aerodynamic fuselage optimises air speed and fuel economy.
A low tail-rotor tip speed, heavy-duty muffler, and large cantered tail decrease flyover noise, resulting in a community friendly helicopter.
