The origins of the Bell 412 helicopter go back to 1979 at which time Bell Helicopter was seeking to expand on their medium utility line of helicopters through updating to appeal to the then current market, thus improving sales.

The engineers at Bell fitted their model 212 with improved systems and a main rotor made from stronger, light weight, composite materials, then they added an extra two blades.

The Bell 412 helicopter has been updated and improved throughout the years. Its variants feature higher gross weight capacity, additional fuel, a lower maintenance, more responsive, reliable, transmission, and more advanced avionics.

Bell 412 helicopters are used in civilian and military roles throughout the world. Some 900 have been produced to date.
