Bell YOH-4 Helicopter from the early 1960s, predecessor of the Bell 206 Jet Range. This is a prototype manufactured for the US Army LOH Helicopter competition which Hughes originally won and was awarded the contract. Bell went back to the drawing board and designed the Bell 206 Jet Ranger and this design was abandoned. Only and handful were manufactured and perhaps only two remaining in the world. This is a real piece of helicopter pioneering history and a great addition to any aviation collection or museum.

Rolled out in 1959, this Helicopter Trainer was powered by a Hirth 40hp ILO piston engine and had a twenty-one foot counterbalanced fiberglass rotor blade. In all eighteen of these Heli-Trainers were built operating throughout Europe, training military helicopter pilots. Although unable to fly, they were ideal for the teaching of hovering techniques and were replaced by dual trainer helicopters. A later flyable version, the Bo-103 was built using the same rotor system. Some slight assembly required, been in a private collection for several years.
