In January 1968, the US Navy purchased 40 commercial Bell 206A as the TH-57A Sea Ranger to use as their primary helicopter trainer. In 1989 they were replaced by the commercial Bell 206B-3 designated as TH-57B for primary training under visual flight rules. Starting in 1985, additional Bell 206B-3 configured for advanced training under instrument flight rules (IFR) were bought and designated as the TH-57C. The TH-57D is a planned upgrade program to convert existing TH-57B and TH-57C to a single standard digital cockpit.
