CowanSim Releases Bell 222UT
CowanSim has just made a surprise release of X-Plane 11’s latest helicopter, the iconic Bell 222UT that is known for its appearance in the popular TV show Airwolf.
The Bell 222 is a twin-turbine light helicopter introduced by Bell Helicopter in 1979. It is powered by two LTS101-650 engines and a two-bladed rotor. Bell launched the 222UT variant in 1983, it differs from other versions by a lack of landing gear, replaced by skids. This allows the rotorcraft to have bigger auxiliary tanks ,therefore, the range was augmented to 486 nautical miles.
