The Helio H-370 Propjet Courier was a turboprop powered aircraft developed by Helio in the late 1960s. The H-370 consisted of a standard Courier airframe fitted with a 317 h.p. Allison Model 250 Turboshaft engine. Only one H-370 was built (A/C No. N6309V) before the project was abandoned due to various problems that were found during flight testing at Helio's Bedford, Massachusetts facility.
