The original Bell 407 model is a single-engine, multipurpose utility helicopter, intorduced in 1996 and manufactured by Bell Helicopter. The 407 was a direct derivative of the 206L-4 LongRanger helicopter, with the intention to create a new light helicopter for the commercial market. The 407’s fuselage was lengthened and widened to accommodate for a more comfortable cabin and extended windows, and was primarily constructed of composite material. A later variant of the aircraft was the Bell 407GX, which featured the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit, upgraded avionics and flight controls, and utilising a Rolls-Royce 250-C47 engine for optimised performance.
