if you have not had a chance to check out the bell 505, we have news for you.

AeroGulf has always had very good working relations with Bell Flight, as the majority of our fleet is Bell (206 and 212), because of that, during Bell Flight’s display campaigns throughout the world and the region, their Bell 505 has made its way to the MEBAA show in December 2018 along with their Bell 429.

They have kept their 505 aircraft in our hangar, showcasing its best features on-ground and in the skies of Dubai. Mr. Martin Sinclair, one of AeroGulf’s pilots, had the great opportunity of conversing with a Bell Flight representative about the Jet Ranger X.
