The Bell 427 stands as a light, twin-engine utility helicopter meticulously developed and manufactured by Bell Helicopter in collaboration with Samsung Aerospace Industries. Before proposing the Bell 427, the company attempted to create a twin version of its popular Bell 206 series, but without success until the late 1990s. The 427 marked Bell’s inaugural aircraft designed solely on a computer, with the finalised design employing two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW207D turboshaft engines, propelling a four-blade main rotor system with a composite rotor hub and a two-blade tail rotor, akin to the Bell 407. Distinguishing features from the 407 include an extended cabin and the removal of the roof beam to facilitate a more comfortable passenger cabin. The Bell 427 was offered with a modified cabin layout for medical evacuation operations.
