The Bell 505 features the Safran Helicopter Engines Arrius 2R engine incorporating dual-channel fadec that delivers good performance and reduces pilot workload and Garmin G1000H avionics. Top speed is 125 knots and useful load 1,500 pounds. When announced in 2013, the price was set at $1.07 million.
 
The five-seat Bell 505 Jet Ranger X received FAA certification six months after notching Canadian approval of the light single, Bell Helicopter announced in June 2017. Deliveries of the five-seat light single to U.S. customers were to begin immediately.
Bell was continuing to work with other certification authorities around the world to bring the 505 to more markets. The Bell Helicopter Training Academy was also prepared for entry into service with customer training and flight training device and coursework on track.
 
The first delivery of the Bell 505 occurred in March 2017 to Pylon Aviation. Bell confirmed delivery of the 200th Bell 505 Jet Ranger X to Austria-based operator Hubi-fly Helikopter GmbH in August 2019 with the global fleet of 200 aircraft flying across six continents.
