The Bell 206 Jet Ranger
This helicopter has been the mainstay of the light helicopter charter market for over 35 years, introduced to the Civil Market initially in 1967. In this time whilst the model numbers may have changed, the basic design of the Jet Ranger has remained the same. Apparently the original design of the Jet Ranger was conceived from a drawing by a 7 year old child giving his interpretation of what a helicopter should look like. This very reliable helicopter gained worldwide success as the most popular single engine turbine model in its class. The spacious cabin offers a five seat configuration with a seating capacity for 4 passengers, 1 person in the front of the aircraft alongside the pilot with 3 additional passengers in the rear of the cabin on forward facing seats. There is also a luggage bay sufficient for light baggage and cases.
The Jet Ranger is a very cost effective helicopter for point to point transport. With a cruising speed of around 120 MPH the maximum range at cruise speed is approximately 400 miles giving an endurance at cruise of 3 hrs 15 minutes.
Far West is located at the Chilliwack Airport about an hour East of Vancouver on the Trans Canada Highway .
