Description

The Bell UH-1 Iroquois “Huey” is a military version of Bells’ civilian 204 and 205 helicopter models. The UH-1 / Bell 204 / Bell 205 helicopters is powered by a single, turbo-shaft engine, with a two-bladed main rotor and tail rotor. The helicopter was originally developed by Bell Helicopter to meet the United States Army’s requirement for a medical evacuation and utility helicopter in 1952. The UH-1 Iroquois first flew on 20 October 1956 and ordered into production in March 1960. The UH-1 was the first turbine-powered helicopter to enter production for the United States military, and more than 16,000 have been produced worldwide.

The first combat operation of the UH-1 “Huey” was in the service of the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. The original designation of HU-1 led to the helicopter’s nickname of Huey. In September 1962, the designation was changed to UH-1, but Huey remained in common use. Approximately 7,000 UH-1 aircraft saw service in Vietnam. Although mostly but not completely faced out of most US military branches, the UH-1 Iroquois “Huey” continues its service with many foreign militaries around the world.

Today the ubiquitous UH-1 continues serving in a civilian role. The Bell 204 / 205 are type-certificated in the transport category and are used in a wide variety of applications, including crop dusting, cargo lifting, and one of its most common uses, aerial firefighting.
