Bell Helicopter last month celebrated the 40th anniversary of its popular 206 model. More than 4,800 206Bs and 1,700 206Ls have been produced since the introduction of the 206A JetRanger on Jan. 13, 1967. “We are currently developing the latest upgrade kit for the 206L that will improve its performance, boost payload and reduce direct operating costs,” 206 program director Dorith Hakim said. The 206 fleet has logged more than 55 million flight hours in more than 60 different countries, according to Bell. The helicopter is produced in Mirabel, Canada.
