Before acquiring any helicopters of their own, the Swedish armed forces held extensive trials with Ostermans Aero's Bell 47s and S-55s - fortunately for the company which had lost a lot of money using the two S-55s on a Malmö - Copenhagen passenger shuttle service in June and July 1955.

This was apparently the very first helicopter exported by Bell, making Ostermans the first commercial helicopter operator outside the USA in February 1947. It was at first unofficially marked SE-AZT. As in other countries, the helicopter was seen as a possible mail vehicle and one of the first cargoes was a few letters delivered to a lighthouse keeper. SE-HAA ditched and sank in the harbour of Stockholm on 20 May 1949. Photo from: Tekniska Museet
