The Canadian Forces Bell CH-146 Griffon is a typical utility helicopter

A utility helicopter is a multi-purpose helicopter. A utility military helicopter can fill roles such ground attack, air assault, cargo, MEDEVAC, command and control, and troop transport.[1] Some overlap of terminology is inevitable with transport helicopter.

A utility helicopter has been described[by whom?] as the size between a light observation helicopter and a medium transport helicopter or simply a medium transport helicopter. Terminology may understandably be confused since only a few countries deploy heavy-lift helicopters.[citation needed]
