Concept follow-on to highly successful JetRanger model revealed at Heli-Expo in February 2002. Little concrete detail given, but artist's impression indicates more streamlined shape and wider glazed cabin, and possible seating for five or six passengers. Industry view being sought, with go-ahead decision likely early in 2003 if helicopter market improves.

Now You have the 429 Big deal-First murse that walks in to the tail rotor-WHAM $$$$ The first murse that bends over to load a strecher and hurt his /her back-WHAM $$$$ FADEC ? first failure-WHAM $$$$ Bell makes $$$ and not helicopters Its a sad day when ideas are lost to $$$.....I have an idea for a loading ramp for the rear door,why break your back.....and raise the tail rotor it will save you more $$$ in the long run...We can only dream.....Bye Bell....

That looks great, I want one or two maybe even four. Bring it on. I love the old Jet rangers great to work with all day long. Yes the design is a "little" dated now but if this new JRX ever see's the light of day, I on board as I'm sure Bell would have done their home work and improved it to something great.

The Bell206 : I don't like the seats, not confortable enough, I prefer astar seats ! They better improve on ergonomic feature if they want me to fly there machine !

I still think this looks utter rubbish compared to the jetranger :)

This is crap! Honestly - what was it that made the 206b so popular - the design - why change something that is perfect already - and why is bell adding 2 more blades to everything - the two bladed main rotor is always going to be the better! the jetranger is an aviation icon " worlds safest single engine aircraft" if its better than anything else - why completely change it - add something new here andf there but a whole new jetranger.....NOTHING CAN REPLACE A JETRANGER!

I am so disappointed that Bell have not gone ahead with this already. The Jetranger is 40 years old! But on the other hand, it is an extremely well-engineered piece of flying equipment so that's the reason. Why change something that works so well?
