The Bell 206 family encompasses both single- and twin-engined utility helicopters, meticulously crafted and manufactured by Bell Helicopter. Initially conceived in response to a U.S. Army requirement for a light observation helicopter, Bell’s design, initially proposed as the 206A JetRanger, transitioned to the commercial realm after not securing victory in the competition. The newly designated commercial utility helicopter, JetRanger, boasted a larger and more refined fuselage design, catering to a spacious cabin for passengers and cargo. Notably, the JetRanger found subsequent selection by the U.S. Army for their observation and reconnaissance helicopter, designated OH-58 Kiowa.
Bell introduced the LongRanger line, culminating in the latest single-engine addition, the Bell 206L-4. Tailored for high-altitude flying, the LongRangers exhibited enhanced endurance in hot weather conditions and reduced engine-generated heat. Following a successful production run, the model ceased production in 2017.
Red Box is delighted to present an extensive array of ground power and support equipment for this aircraft, encompassing tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, all perfectly suited to the requirements of the Bell 206L-4 aircraft.
