I was at the Heli Expo in Atlanta GA Earlier this year, and here at the Bell Helicopter section, I got a chance to see the Bell 505 helicopter and the Bell 429 executive Helicopter.

As you know I’m quite new to rotorcraft but something about these machines’ just very intriguing. Generally helicopters are much more expensive than airplanes. These are more complex machines that takes good skill and diligence to fly. Bell and Robinson are some of the most trusted names in the Helicopter world. And these 2 choppers in the video are among the best.

Here are the stats of the Bell 505 and Bell 429 helicopters
