Bell’s award-winning maintenance support ensures long-term value by maximizing aircraft availability and mission readiness.
Technology Purpose-Built for Situational Awareness
The Bell 505 Public Safety’s Garmin G1000H integrated avionics system allows pilots to monitor critical flight data at a glance and maintain situational awareness. The aircraft can be custom equipped with our latest technology advances and a wide range of mission equipment options.
Prioritizing Safety in the Air and on the Ground
Safety remains Bell’s top priority for its aircraft, from design and testing to manufacture, delivery, and intuitive flight controls. That focus can be seen throughout the Bell 505 Public Safety, including energy crash attenuating seats with 4-point harnesses, rupture-resistant fuel tanks, and many other safety features.
Where Utility Meets Flexibility
The Bell 505 Public Safety has been designed from the skids up for exceptional multi-mission capability. With a large cabin, integrated tie-downs, easily removable seats, and 55’’ clamshell doors, it’s an aircraft that accommodates plenty of gear and reconfigures quickly for the next flight.
