Titles: BELL 47 No’s 1 to 4

The prototype of what was to become a classic helicopter design first flew in Dec 1945, and in 1946 the Bell 47 was awarded the world’s first approved helicopter Type Certificate. It remained in production for another 27 years, until 1973, and was produced under licence in Italy and Japan.

First evaluated by the military in 1947 it’s potential was quickly realised, and numerous variants have been produced over the years for all services, mainly in the training and liaison roles. It has also seen service with many foreign air arms..

We offer four titles containing flight manuals for various military variants of the Bell 47. The files have been copied from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
