MBB Bo-105

MBB's small yet capable BO 105 has won a well-deserved reputation for performance and reliability since it first flew over 30 years ago. Today this adaptable craft is in worldwide military and civilian service.

To the pilot, the BO 105 is a delight to fly, offering good flying characteristics with great agility thanks to its rigid rotors. The current BO 105 with seating for six in an extended fuselage is regarded as one of the most sensible and effective light helicopters in the world, offering a superb view from its rounded contour nose.

Rescue versions of the BO 105 have saved thousands of people in life-threatening situations. It has made a great impact in construction, ambulance and police work, as well as forming the basis for one of the most capable tank-destroyers currently in military service.

Now being marketed by the multinational Eurocopter concern, the BO 105 is a classic design which copes admirably with every task to which it has been assigned.

R.Jackson "Helicopters. Military, Civilian, and Rescue Rotorcraft", 2005

MBB Bo-105

Design of the Bo.105 lightweight, general purpose helicopter was begun in July 1962 utilising basic experience gained by the company in the preceding few years in building the Bo.102 and Bo.103. The former was a non-flying, ultra-light helicopter trainer, and the Bo.103, flown for the first time on 9 September 1961, was essentially the same aircraft minus its fixed base. An enlarged version of the Bo.103 was proposed as the Bo.104, but this project was supplanted by the more promising Bo.105.

The first Bo.105 prototype, powered by a pair of Allison T63 shaft turbine engines and using a conventional hinged-rotor installation, encountered ground resonance problems which eventually caused its destruction. The second machine, which flew for the first time on 16 February 1967, was similarly powered but introduced the 4-blade rigid rotor intended for use in production aircraft. These will be powered by two 375shp MAN-Turbomotoren shaft turbine engines as fitted in the third prototype machine, which first flew on 20 December 1967. In addition to the pilot the Bo.105 will accommodate 3 or 4 passengers with their baggage, and its development was still continuing at the end of 1967. The non-articulated rotor, whose fold-able blades are reinforced with glassfibre, has been developed over several years by Bolkow in association with Sud-Aviation and has been adopted by the French company for its own SA.341 light helicopter.

K.Munson "Helicopters And Other Rotorcraft Since 1907", 1968

MBB Bo-105

The Bo.105 general purpose helicopter project begun in 1962 can be regarded as the crowning of the experience acquired by Ludwig Boelkow's company with the Bo.46 and the subsequent Bo.102 and Bo.103. The Bo.105 started out as a lightweight five-six seater with twin turbines to improve flight safety and all-weather capabilities. The first aircraft, designated V-1, was ready for ground testing in September 1966. The helicopter had been fitted with a conventional Westland Scout articulated rotor, but in spite of this, it was destroyed by ground resonance during initial trials.

By the time the second prototype, the V-2, was ready, the rigid rotor had been thoroughly tested and was fitted to the new helicopter. The Bo.105 V-2 made its first flight at Ottobrunn (Munich) on 16 February 1967; it had a pair of Allison 250-C18 turbines and the four-blade rigid rotor, and from the outset demonstrated excellent controllability while hovering and at low flight speeds.

Further changes and modifications led to the third prototype — the V-3 fitted with two German-built MAN-Turbo 6022 turbines, and to two pre-production models, the Bo.105 V-4 and V-5, the first of which made its maiden flight on 1 May 1969. Two Allison 250-C20 turbines were later installed on the V-4, which thus became the prototype of the definitive Bo.105C. Meanwhile, from spring 1970, new "droop snoot" design blades, which had a marked downward curvature on the leading edge, were introduced. These were made by MBB, the Messerschmitt-Bolkow-Blohm und Voss group — of which Bolkow and its affiliates had become part.

In 1972, the Bo.105 went into full-scale production, and was offered with either Allison 250-C18 turbine engines or the more powerful C20. The helicopter was approved by the German Federal Authority LBA with the first power-plant in October 1970, after successfully completing autorotation trials in the autumn of 1969. Approval by the US Federal Aviation Administration followed in March 1971 and was extended to the C20 engines in August 1972, while the Canadian authorities certified the Bo.105 in April 1973. The German helicopter also received a British Certificate of Airworthiness in July 1973 and was recognized by the Italian Aeronautical Register in March 1974.

There was no doubt that, with its twin-turbine engines and spacious cabin, the Bo.105 would be widely adopted for civil operations, and the German government in fact ordered 20 for its "Katastrophenschutz" programme, to ensure rapid assistance in the event of a disaster. The military version differs little from the civil one. The antitank version can carry six HOT missiles, three on either side of the cabin, with a stabilized sight on the port side.

The results of tests with the Bo.105 HGH were particularly interesting. These were completed in 1975 after two years' research aimed at improving the helicopter's performance. With special fairings, a modified tail unit and smaller skids, this helicopter reached a maximum speed of 372km/h, 100km/h more than the conventional Bo.105. The same aircraft was also given a 6.20m span wing, which enabled it to reach a speed of 404km/h.

The German Army has ordered the following numbers of the military version of the MBB helicopter: Bo.105M liaison and observation, 227; Bo.105 / PAH-1 antitank, 212. Other military Bo.105s have been supplied to Iraq, the Gulf States, Spain, the Philippines and Indonesia, and the Bo.105 has been built under license in these latter three countries by the CASA, NAM and Nurtanio companies, respectively.

The civil version has also been a major export success and was initially marketed through Boeing in the United States before MBB set up its own US facilities. By the end of 1981, total production of the Bo.105 exceeded 1100. More than 100 Bo.105s are now in operation in the United States and these were joined in 1982 by the more recent Bo.105CBS Twin Jet II variant, with 420shp Allison 250-C20B turbines, which, apart from having better flying capabilities, has 20 per cent more cabin room.

Further development of the Bo.105CBS led to the introduction in 1981 of the Bo.105LS (Lift Stretch) which combines the enlarged cabin with the uprated transmission of the military version and more powerful 550shp Allison 250-C28C engines to provide a much improved hot/high performance and external lift capability.

G.Apostolo "The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Helicopters", 1984

Design of the MBB BO 105 light utility helicopter began in 1962 and, under German government contract, ground rig testing of its radical rigid rotor and construction of the first prototypes began in 1964. The first prototype airframe, powered by two Allison 250-C18 turboshaft engines and using the rotor from a Westland Scout, was destroyed on the ground at an early date by resonance problems; the second prototype, first flown on 16 February 1967, was the first to take to the air with the new rigid rotor. Initial production version was the BO 105 C, superseded in 1975 by the BO 105 CB which remains the current standard production version.

Suitable for all-weather operations, the military BO 105s are particularly valuable because of the remarkable nap-of-the-earth flight capability provided by the rigid rotor, and the Federal German government has authorised production of a total of 439 BO 105s for service with the German army. These comprise 227 of the BO 105 M(VBH), a liaison and light observation version of which deliveries began in 1980; and 212 of the BO 105 P(PAH-1) anti-tank version, each able to carry six Euromissile HOT missiles. Initial deliveries of this latter version, to Heeresfliegerregiment 16, began in December 1980. MBB has also developed an anti-tank version able to deploy eight Hughes TOW missiles. Other military operators include the Mexican navy with six radar-equipped versions used for maritime patrol, and the Spanish army with 60 BO 105Ps, 57 of them assembled by CASA. The Spanish company is also assembling 80 105s for other customers, and there are active licence-assembly programmes underway in Indonesia as the Nurtanio NBO 105, and Chile. Others are in use in Brunei, Canada, Ciskei, Colombia, Holland, Iraq, Nigeria, Peru, Sierra Leone and Sweden. By 1991 more than 1,300 BO 105s had been delivered to 37 countries and the type is scheduled to remain in production until replaced by the new BO 108 in 1995.

D.Donald "The Complete Encyclopedia of World Aircraft", 1997

Development of this lightweight helicopter began in July 1962 and the first prototype (V-1), fitted with conventional Westland Scout articulated rotor was ready for ground testing September 1969; destroyed by ground resonance during trials. Second prototype (V-2) with hingeless titanium rotor hub and composite rotor blades, powered by twin Allison 250-C18 turboshaft engines flew on 16 February 1967; V-3 fitted with two German-built MAN-Turbo 6022 engines, followed by preproduction models V-4 and V-5. V-4, which first flew 1 May 1969, became the prototype for the definitive production BO 105C, powered by Allison 250-C20 turbines. Full-scale production commenced in 1972; German LBA certification October 1970; FAA certification March 1971.

All BO 105 helicopters for the world market are manufactured and assembled at the company's Donauwörth facility in Germany, with the following exceptions: those for the Spanish market, which are assembled in Spain by CASA; those for the Indonesian market, which are manufactured and assembled in Indonesia by IPTN; and BO 105 LS helicopters produced at Eurocopter's Fort Erie facility in Ontario, Canada.

CircuitBurner, e-mail, 01.12.2010

First helicopter I ever flew, believe it or not! , and it was a night flight. Compared to everything else since then, the best control and response of any non combat light helicopter. Impressive. In my opinion, one of the best helicopters ever.
A few notes about the Bolkow 105 to new comers, and of safety concern...these can and will kill you.

Vibrates oddly when transitioning into hover from altitude...for a few seconds... due to rigid rotor obviously. Expect this.
*Make certain that the "pendulum absorbers" at the root of each main blade operates freely, and dont lock up during freezing weather...or big trouble awaits.
*When removing dual controls, make sure the cyclic-interconnect-tube is secured in place. AND make sure the pedal cover is installed in the correct direction!
*make sure ALL 4 fuel pumps engaged before flight!
*Never allow obstruction or mis-use of hydraulic test switch during flight operation...thats disaster.
*Dont Ignore your chip-detectors!!!
*During power out auto rotation, shut down engines with throttle back, or severe (catastophic) roll to right can occur. long up on this!
*During snow or blizzard condition, leave ignition system engaged for constant ignitor, avoids flame outs.

A few items I could think of for the Bo-105 new comers... Im sure I missed many other good points...but many are still unaware of these...based on study of accident reports and subsequent operator safety updates.
