Schweizer used the dynamic components, rotors, controls and systems of the Schweizer 300C in the development of the Schweizer 330. However, the 330 featured a redesigned fuselage.
After release of the 330, Schweizer began work on upgrading the dynamic components of the 330SP. The Schweizer 333 featured newly developed dynamic systems components and new-technology rotor blades with a cambered airfoil and a larger diameter. The upgraded 333 benefited with a greater max gross weight, more useful load, more speed, and more hover performance. A kit was created to upgrade Model 330 and 330SP aircraft.
Variant models include the 330, 330SP, 333, MQ-8 Fire Scout, and Schweizer S-434.
