Aircraft Parts and Components

With the success of the Bell Model 204 design a need was identified for a larger and more powerful version of this helicopter. The result was the Model 205 with a lengthened fuselage that accommodated 12 to 14 troops and a larger main rotor blade system. The Model 205 prototype first flew in 1961 and deliveries as the UH-1D started in August 1963.

An upgraded 1,400 shp (1044 kW) T53-L-13 engine was added to create the UH-1H model, most UH-1D aircraft eventually being converted. The UH-1H is the most common example of the Bell Model 205 helicopter.

MRO, Exchange and Non-destructive Testing Services

The lasting success of the UH-1H has led to the design of upgrades to improve the performance and capability of the type. One of the more common upgrades is the Bell Helicopter UH-1HP Huey II.

Introduced in the early 1990’s, the Huey II upgrade adds a 1,800 shp (1344 kW) Honeywell T53-L-703 engine. The kit upgrades the drive train with Model 212 / UH-1N components including a 1,290 shp (960 kW) transmission. The conversion increases the gross external weight of a UH-1H from 9,500 lbs to 10,500 lbs, about 600 lbs greater capacity than a standard UH-1H helicopter.

The Bell Model 204 was the leading design for a US Army competition in the 1950’s to provide a helicopter capable of medical evacuations as well as instrument flight training. Entering into production in the late 1950’s the HU-1A was quickly revised into the HU-1B with larger main rotor blade system and a larger cabin. The powerplant was also upgraded from the T53-L-1 turboshaft engine to a 960 shp (716 kW) T53-L-5 engine and later an 1,100 shp (820 kW) T53-L-11 engine. The helicopter designation HU-1 was revised in 1962 to UH-1.

A number of variants have been created from the Model 204, including: UH-1C which superseded the UH-1B design, UH-1E for the USMC, TH-1F and UH-1F for the USAF using a General Electric T58-GE-3 engine, TH-1L and UH-1L for the US Navy using the upgraded T53-L-13 engine, and the UH-1M for the US Army. Agusta and Fuji both produced variants under license from Bell.
