Description: The OH-58 Kiowa is a combat scout and reconnaissance helicopter derived from Bell 406 commercial aircraft and intended for use by the US Army aviation units. Following the Army Helicopter Improvement Program (AHIP), Bell and the US Army developed the OH-58D Kiowa unarmed helicopter which features. Around 500 existing OH-58A/C models were planned to be retrofitted into OH-58D configuration, but this figure was finally slashed with less than 200 OH-58s upgraded to -D configuration. In the 1990s Bell Helicopter also developed a commercial utility helicopter variant based upon the OH-58 airframe, the Bell 407 and Bell 427 aircraft.

The Bell 407GXP is a light, single-engine, commercial helicopter derived from the Bell 407GX offering performance improvements, payload increase (50-pound) and pilot workload reduction. The helicopter is powered by a single engine Rolls-Royce M250-C47B featuring Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC). The aircraft is also equipped with new avionics features such as a hover performance calculator improvement, as well as a transmission TBO extension of +500 hours that will lower maintenance costs. The Bell 407GXP suits corporate, Emergency Medical Service (EMS), homeland security and utility helicopter roles. Bell Helicopter launched this aircraft at Heli-Expo on March 3, 2015. Deliveries are slated to start before the end of 2015.
