Rolls-Royce and Bell Helicopter have signed a ten-year agreement, valued at up to $400 million for the supply of Model 250 engines for Bell 206 and 407 helicopters. As part of this agreement, Model 250 engines will be delivered to Bell Helicopter through 2017.

Ken Roberts, President of Rolls-Royce Helicopter Engines, said: "We have delivered more than 18,000 Model 250 engines for use on single and twin-engine helicopters to Bell over the last decades. During those years, Bell and Rolls-Royce have worked together to keep Model 250-powered aircraft at the forefront of the helicopter industry through continued investment and the introduction of new technology. This new ten-year agreement is a commitment to build upon that valued and successful partnership."

Rolls-Royce and Bell Helicopter initiated their partnership in 1961 with the maiden flight of a Rolls-Royce turbine powered variant of the classic Bell 47
