At this year’s HELI-EXPO, Bell Helicopter opened HELI-EXPO 2014 with a number of new announcements and models, headlined by the official introduction of the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X, the newly named aircraft designed for the short light single market.

In addition, the booth included a new mockup of the Bell 525 Relentless configured for search and rescue missions, a Bell 407GX, and a Bell 429WLG.
