The Bell 427 stands out as a light, twin-engine utility helicopter meticulously developed and manufactured by Bell Helicopter in collaboration with Samsung Aerospace Industries. Prior to introducing the Bell 427, the company had endeavoured to create a twin version of its popular Bell 206 series, though without success until the late 1990s. The 427 marked Bell’s initial foray into designing an aircraft exclusively through computer technology. The finalised design incorporated 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, mirroring the configuration of the Bell 407. Distinguishing features from the 407 include an extended cabin and the removal of the roof beam to enhance the comfort of the passenger cabin. The Bell 427 was also offered with a modified cabin layout catering to medical evacuation operations.
