The Bell 412, a utility helicopter meticulously designed and constructed by Bell Helicopter, is an integral member of the Huey family. Bell initiated the development of the 412 in the late 1970s, drawing inspiration from a preceding Bell aircraft, the 212. Two models of the 212 underwent conversion and modification, featuring a more powerful twin-pack engine and a sophisticated four-blade rotor, resulting in prototypes for the new Bell 412, which took its inaugural flight in 1979. The initial Bell 412 model received certification in January 1981, with deliveries commencing immediately after certification. The inaugural variant in the emerging 412 family was the Bell 412SP, marked by significant enhancements such as higher MTOW, added fuel capacity, and increased options for modifying seating arrangements in the cabin.
