Click to enlarge
If performance is the criterion, the Bell 430 is unsurpassed in its category, and it is widely acknowledged as the flagship of Bell Helicopter's civil machines.
The main differences between the Bell 430 and the 230 are the 4-blade rotor head, the extended cabin (0.45 m longer) and the new cockpit design. The power system consists of two Allison 250-C40 turbines rated at 808 SHP. The first flight of the Bell 430 took place on 25 October 1994, five years after the start of development of the Bell 230.
The aim of the designers was better manoeuvrability, low vibration levels and improved comfort for up to eight passengers. The sound-damped cabin, separated from the cockpit by a clear-view screen, offers shade from the sun at the press of a button, infra-red music transfer, subdued lighting and a telephone system.
The excellent performance of the Bell 430 makes it an ideal aircraft for all kinds of applications, including demanding off-shore service, and especially as a rescue helicopter with on-board ambulance.
In 1996 Ron Bower and John Williams selected the second Bell 430 off the production line for a flight around the world. The crew of N430Q took off on 17 August, and landed again in Fairoaks, Great Britain, after a record circumnavigation lasting 17 days, 6 hours 14 minutes and 25 seconds. The distance covered was 20,548 nautical miles, or 38,054.896 km.
Our kit contains a 14-part GRP fuselage, a retractable undercarriage (optional skid landing gear for the UT version), a window glazing set, bulkheads, a ballraced stainless steel tail rotor drive shaft with articulated joints and various small items.
In model form the Bell 430 can be fitted with a petrol mechanics and a wide range of fittings and equipment to suit your personal taste, according to the level of scale fidelity you require and the full-size prototype you choose to model.
The model illustrated is fitted out with optional scale accessories. The model is supplied in kit-form, i.e. not assembled.
