The Bell 427 is a light, twin-engine utility helicopter developed and manufactured by Bell Helicopter and Samsung Aerospace Industries. Before proposing the Bell 427, the company has attempted to create the a twin version of its popular Bell 206 series, however without success until the late 1990s. The 427 was Bell’s first aircraft designed solely on a computer, with the finalised design utilising two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW207D turboshaft engines, powering a four-blade main rotor system with composite rotor hub and a two-blade tail rotor, similarly to the Bell 407. Other differences from the 407 include an extended cabin, roof beam removed to facilitate for a more comfortable passenger cabin. The Bell 427 was offered with modified cabin layout for medical evacuation operations.
