Bell 210

The Bell 210 is a refurbished UH-1H Huey (Bell 205) fuselage fitted with Bell 212 components: main rotor hub and blades, tail rotor, main and tail rotor support structure, transmission, rotating controls, and tail boom. Powered by a Honeywell T53-517B engine (1800 Shp) has a 15 seat capacity.

First flew on December 18, 2004 and received FAA certification on July 21, 2005. Capable of fulfill law enforcement, forestry, and firefighting missions, the Bell 210 was envisioned as a cheaper solution to new built aircraft. Only 4 aircraft were completed by Bell subsidiary Edwards & Associates although the Huey II upgrade kits were sold worldwide. It was a candidate for the US Army LUH program where it lost against the EC145 (later called UH-72A Lakota)
