Why do we say Hughes 500( five hundred)  but then say Bell 206 ( two-Oh-six)? shouldn't it be a Bell Two hundred and six? or a Bell Two hundred and twelve? Bell two hundred and five? WHY????

I'm too confused to fly anymore. Anyone got that phone number to that truck driving school?

Why do we call them 500’s.? The type certificate is a 369 and subsequent variants. Possible answer; we pilots are too lazy to use 4 syllables.
