Bell unveiled a mockup of their 505 JetRanger X at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo on Tuesday, June 7, 2016. This is the first time the Bell 505 has been on display in Japan and marks the beginning of a four-month demonstration tour across the region, including various customer sites and events in Japan, the United States Embassy and the Japan International Aerospace Exhibition 2016.

“Customers throughout Japan continue to have a strong interest in the Bell 505’s capabilities, and we are thrilled to showcase this state-of-the-art aircraft to our customers here,” said Richard Thornley, Bell Helicopter’s vice president of Japan. “The aircraft continues to exceed performance expectations, and will undoubtedly continue to draw attention from our customers.  With advancements in safety, performance and capability and the price point, the Bell 505 is proving to be a leader in the short light single market around the world. In Japan, we have already received significant interest from many customers,” he added. understands the base price is $1,075M but that is very much the basic aircraft without any extras at all.
