The Bell 206 is a family of two-bladed, single- and twin-engined helicopters, manufactured by Bell Helicopter. The original plans for this aircraft were proposed as a response to a United States Navy request on behalf of the Army for a light observation helicopter in October, 1960. Bell submitted the D-250 design for the proposal (this would have been designated the name YHO-4), competing with 12 other manufacturers, however subsequently not awarded the winning title. Not discouraged from this, Bell had followed through with production of the aircraft, re-branding it as the Bell 206A JetRanger. The later variant 206LT TwinRanger was a twin-engined conversion of the 206L, utilising twin Allison 250-C20R turboshaft engines. The TwinRanger had eventually been replaced by the Bell 427.
