The Bell 230 is a twin-engine light helicopter built by Bell Helicopter, and a derivative of a predecessing model, the Bell 222. ///Development for the Bell 222 begun in the late 1960s, when Bell wanted to design a new light, twin-turbine engine helicopter, for which manufacturing commenced in 1975. Following the success of the Bell 222, the company aspired to create further variants in the years to come, one of which was the Bell 230 that came about in 1991, based on the 222B’s design. The new Bell 230 was installed with more powerful Allison 250 turboshaft powerplants, with engine exhaust stacks located high on the cowling, powering two main rotor blades of stainless-steel-fiberglass construction. Other features of the Bell 230 include dual hydraulic and electrical systems, sponsons housing the retractable landing gear, and the Noda Matic vibration reduction system.
