The Bell 206 is a family of two-bladed, single- or twin-engine helicopters, manufactured by Bell Helicopter.

The Bell 206 in FlightGear was an early example for helicopter FDM configurations, that never had a maintainer, had a "poor FDM" (according to Maik Justus), and no 3D model.

In 2011 developer named MOJO made a great 3D model and FG-TUX wrote the new FDM.
