Bell announced development of the new 222 twin in 1974, following the positive response generated by a mockup proposal displayed at that year's Helicopter Association of America convention. Having taken note of potential customers' preferences & suggestions, Bell modified its design accordingly, and the development led to the Model 222's first flight in August 1976. A number of advanced features were designed into the 222, including the Noda Matic vibration reduction system developed for the 214ST, stub wings housing the retractable undercarriage, provision for IFR avionics, & dual hydraulic & electrical systems.
