BELL 214


Title: Bell 214

The Bell 214 was developed as a specialised heavylift helicopter from the Bell 205 “Huey” by installing a 2,950 hp T5508 engine. The principal military user was Iran, with plans to licence manufacture the type in the late 1970’s, but these fell through with the downfall of the Shah.

Although sharing the same basic model number, the later 214ST was quite a different machine, having a larger fuselage with twin engines, and being optimised for passenger transport for the oil industry.

This title includes the Iranian pilot’s manual for the Bell 214, and a manufacturer’s publicity brochure for each of the Bell 214 and the Bell 214ST. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
