FORT WORTH, Texas -- Bell Textron Inc., a Textron Inc., delivered the 200th Bell 505 Jet Ranger X August 15 to Austria-based operator Hubi-fly Helikopter GmbH. The aircraft will be used for corporate transport.

The first delivery of the Bell 505 occurred in March 2017 to Pylon Aviation. The global fleet of 200 aircraft are flying across six continents.

"What sets the Bell 505 apart from other short light single aircraft is its multi-mission capability," said LaShan Bonaparte, program director, Bell 505 and Bell 429. "Our intent from initial design for the Bell 505 was to deliver an industry-leading aircraft to the market. As operator needs expand, we continue to see growth of our 505 customer base."

The Bell 505 Jet Ranger X was developed with the support of a customer advisory panel focused on honoring the legacy of the renowned Bell 206 Jet Ranger while enhancing performance, technology and cost of operations. The aircraft has continued to garner global attention from operators in a variety of segments including electronic news gathering, law enforcement, helicopter emergency medical services, corporate transportation and utility missions.

With a speed of 125 knots (232 km/h) and useful load of 1,500 pounds (680 kg), the Bell 505 is Bell’s new five-seat aircraft designed for safety, efficiency and reliability using advanced avionics technology. It incorporates proven dynamic components, advanced aerodynamic design, a dual channel FADEC Turbomeca Arrius 2R engine and best-in-class value.

The Bell 505 is powered by a single Safran Helicopter Engines Arrius 2R rated 505 shp (377 kW) for takeoff and 459 shp (342 kW) for max continuous operation.
