First announced at the Heli Expo 1996 in Dallas, the Bell 427 is a twin engine helicopter developed in partnership with Samsung Aerospace Industries (later KAI) of South Korea. It was Bell's first aircraft designed entirely on a computer.

First flight took place on December 11, 1997 and final assembly was made by Bell Helicopter Canada at Mirabel.

An improved version, to be named Bell 427i, with a lengthened fuselage and IFR capable will result in the Bell 429. Production of the 427 ended in 2011 with all remaining orders converted to the new model.
