Information about the Bell 505 SLS Helicopter


Bell debuted the SLS helicopter initially at an airshow in Paris in 2013 and after many changes and improvements upon the design the aircraft was awarded certification in Canada in 2016. The SLS helicopter features a sleek design with the air-frame being constructed predominantly of aluminum and some composites. The helicopter’s floor extends 22 sq. feet and incorporates a roomy luggage bay. The SLS helicopter’s flight deck consists of a Garmin G1000H glass avionics integrated flight suite and the helicopter can additionally be outfitted with a cargo hook to be utilized for lifts.

Production of the SLS helicopter was to commence in 2015 at a facility specifically built to manufacture the 505 in Lafayette, Louisiana. However, in May of the following year, Bell’s CEO relocated production to an assembly center in Canada. The Louisiana facility ultimately became an assemblage facility in the production of another Bell helicopter. The jet Ranger 505 was designed specifically as a safer, more affordable, and effective SLS helicopter and it appears as if aviation industry insiders concur as intent to purchase letters were accumulating rapidly as early as 2015. Although the 505 had achieved Canadian certification in 2016, it didn't receive FAA certification until 2017, with the first delivery of the Bell SLS helicopter being made in March 2017.
