Bell Helicopter History

Bell Helicopter History

As one of the most effective and popular brands of helicopter out there, Bell has established itself as one of the key names within the industry for some time now tanks to their incredible attention of detail and their intricate nature inside the cockpit by the helicopters themselves.

They know how to make the interior of a helicopter spacious and comfortable, as well as ensuring that pilots have the depth and detail of options available to them to make sure they can take off, fly and land without any potential problems.

The company itself has a huge amount of history, having first been formed in 1935. The helicopter brands that they offer are used around the world, and its humble beginnings in Texas, USA have seen Bell expand far beyond their original position to become one of the genuine leaders of aviation in the world.

The company’s strength and foundation has been there from today once, as the Bell Company focused on creating fighter aircraft that could make as significant difference on the battlefield. They came up with two specific fighters; the XFM-1 Airacuda, and the P-39 Airacobra.

Both were relatively well received but they were never quite the level that some were hoping for. Rather than letting it get them down, Bell worked on the problems and soon started to move into newer levels of helicopter design and development across the globe.

Eventually, the company lost its dependence on government and military equipment and was producing commercial helicopters – the Bell 47 being their first of note – for various purposes worldwide.

Eventually, the company was bought out by Textron and it eventually became a massive part of the industry for helicopters as their helicopter arm became the strongest of the company. Their most successful release, arguably, is that of the UH-1 “Huey”. This helicopter was used during the Vietnam War to amazing effect and it soon became one of the most prominent pictures of the entire conflict.
