Bell appointed Universal Helicopter (UHI) as its first Bell 505 Dealer in the United States with Authorized territory of Arizona and Utah. Bell’s dealership network creates a complete experience from aircraft purchasing to operator training for current and future Bell 505 customers. 

“Deepening our collaboration with Universal Helicopters (UHI) and naming them our first dealership in the United States is an important step as we continue to see growth for the Bell 505 around the world,” said Lane Evans, director, Bell 505 Sales. “While Universal Helicopters is based in the United States and our first Bell 505 dealership in country, their customer reach will play an important role in continuing interest for the Bell 505 and supporting the increasing need for future operator training.”

Universal Helicopters is the only domestic Bell-Certified Training Facility that is equipped to offer customers the expertise needed to master the Bell 206 and gain their private pilot license and beyond using the Bell 505. Earlier this year, Bell’s Global Training facility and Universal Helicopters announced their collaboration to deliver Ab Initio and Rotorcraft Add-on training utilizing the Bell 505 training to pilots across the U.S. 

Universal Helicopters President Dr. Gordon A Jiroux, hc, stated, “We are proud and honored to be the first Bell Dealer in the US for Bell’s State-of-the-Art 505. The Bell 505 is the perfect entry level helicopter for those wanting a more stable platform with all of today’s technological upgrades.”

The Bell 505 is ideal for private charters, corporate executives, medical evacuations, utilities, public safety, pilot training and more. The light single-engine helicopter offers a rare combination of rugged high performance, superior fuel efficiency and a low cost of acquisition and operation. With the only dual-channel FADEC engine in its class, the helicopter has plenty of power at high altitudes. Additionally, the high-tech G1000H NXi all glass flight deck and panoramic windows provide great visibility, full situational awareness and safety.
