These are the top 10 most produced helicopter models in the world, according to the “World’s Most Produced Helicopters Infographic” cited in[1]. The key reasons for their high production numbers are:

  • They have been in production for decades, with some models like the Mil Mi-8 and Bell UH-1 Iroquois having been produced since the 1960s and 1950s respectively. This has allowed them to accumulate very high production volumes over time.
  • They have been widely adopted by militaries, governments, and commercial operators around the world due to their proven reliability, versatility, and cost-effectiveness. Models like the Black Hawk, Iroquois, and JetRanger have become ubiquitous in their respective roles.
  • Some manufacturers like Mil, Bell, and Robinson have been able to maintain high production rates and market share over the decades through continuous improvements and new variants of their popular models. [1][2][3]
