Perhaps the most iconic of all helicopters, the Bell Long Ranger is quite simply the most popular turbine helicopter ever built. It is a proven safety record and it also has a good size cargo area.

Bell 206 Long Ranger

The powerful and reliable 650-horsepower Rolls-Royce engine flies higher and further. For superior safety, the 206L features a high-inertia two-bladed rotor system, while the patented suspension system delivers an incredibly smooth ride. The 206L can hold up to six passengers, very comfortably. And the club-passenger seating allows for face-to-face conversations.
