Bell 214

Derived from 205

The 214A/C Huey Plus was a development of the Bell 205 originally designed for Iran which received more than 300 aircraft of this type. Main feature was a single and more powerful Lycoming LTC4B-8 engine (2.930 shp) and upgraded rotor system.

The 214B BigLifter was the civilian variant, powered by a roughly similar T55-08D engine, and was produced until 1981.

The 214ST, produced between 1979 and 1991, shares the same model number, but is a larger, much-modified twin-engine derivative.
