In the 1960’s, Bell began designing a twin turbine engine light helicopter. To further demonstrate the design… a mock up of the new helicopter was displayed in 1974 at a helicopter convention. Following the interest… Bell subsequently announced the Bell 222. Furthermore… it became the first light commercial twin turbine helicopter developed in the USA. The 222 first flew on August 13, 1976. It received certification from the FAA on August 16 1979 and further approved for VFR in December 1979. The FAA approved the 222 for single-pilot… IFR operation on May 15 1980. Further development of the 222 is the Bell 230. A converted 222 first flew as the prototype in August 1991. Transport Canada awarded certification in March 1992.
The Bell 230 is a twin-engine light utility helicopter… powered by two Allison 250 turbo shafts. The 230 has optional skid or wheel undercarriage.
