Encyclopedia - Bell 412

The Bell 412 is a successful upgrade of the Bell 212 Twin Huey built in the late 1960s. The first 412 prototype flew in 1979 with an upgraded PT6T-9 engine, a paired turbine pack and a four bladed main rotor rather than the twin blade 212 version.

The 412 also brought about multiple seating configurations rather than the standard 15 seat options of the 212
