Bell has shipped one of its 505 JetRanger X demonstators to Europe, and the aircraft is expected to do a tour. That will follow its appearance at the Aero Friedrichshafen show from April 18 to 21, an event dedicated to General Aviation.
Registered N505FW, the helicopter was flown to Baltimore harbour on 15th March for shipment across the Atlantic. It was then noted flying between Antwerp port and Kortrijk airfield on 3rd April where it is being looked after by Air Technology for Bell.
The first two 505s in Europe are now flying in the UK. Other countries across the continent expecting examples in the coming weeks include Belgium, Denmark, France, Poland, Sweden, and Switzerland
