Type Description

Production ended in 2001.

Widely considered the first light twin-engined helicopter in commercial service, the MBB Bo 105 is renowned for its maneuverability and responsiveness. This is partly due to its rigid, hingeless rotor blade design. The aircraft's rotor system is entirely hingeless, with the rotor head consisting of a solid titanium block to which the four blades are bolted. The flexibility of the rotor blades works to absorb movements typically necessitating hinges in most helicopter rotor designs.
