The Bell 206 is a family of single- and twin-engined utility helicopters, developed and manufactured by Bell Helicopter. Bell originally came up with the helicopter’s design as a proposal for a U.S. Army requirement, calling for a light observation helicopter. As the design did not win the competition, Bell opted for marketing the aircraft as a commercial utility helicopter, under the 206A JetRanger designation. The new aircraft featured a larger and more elegant fuselage design, to accmmodate for a roomier cabin for both passengers and baggage/cargo. An interesting fact is that the JetRanger was subsequently selected by the U.S. Army for their observation and reconaissance helicopter, which was designated OH-58 Kiowa. A later variant in the 206 family was the Bell 206B-3, installed with an uprated Allison 250-C20J engine, and a larger tail rotor in order to aid yaw control.
