Aircraft Description

Much like how AIRBUS have Helibras building H125's in Brazil, BELL Helicopters had a JV with Leonardo to build airframes in Italy and this Jet Ranger is one of those ships.

It is 100% civilian certified for Part 135 operations and we are on a mission to find private owners or flight schools who appreciate new leather seats, refurbished plastics and future proof airframes that are as straight as a pool cue with ZERO oil canning and ZERO corrosion.

We're keeping the console simple so you can choose if you want to install glass cockpit or digital gauges and build the helicopter you want to own.

For a lot less than the price of an R44 you can own a turbine helicopter that is notoriously safe and reliable. Jet Rangers are the "Toyota Corolla" of the sky and more sensible than gumboots for maintenance and reliability with a surplus of parts and support globally. I've completed all the test flying on this ship and it makes 105kts IAS at 70% TQ with full fuel.

If you ever need to autorotate there's time to text the wife that you'll be home late for dinner. If you value a conservative, fun and sensible helicopter, don't buy an R44 or R66 with that pending 12 year calendar issue - just give me a call. Stephen Boyce +6421540460

As a first-time user of AvBuyer I was not sure of the exposure, or support I would receive with my listing. When I reached out to a former fellow Vermonter David Olcott, I knew I had made the right decision in choosing AvBuyer as our marketing platform. It could not have been easier. The day the posting went up, there were so many people sending inquiries I could not believe it!
