Hughes announced he also developed a civilian version called the Hughes 500 different models were planned in five or seven-seat configuration according to the needs of customers; versions benefiting from more powerful engines were also developed under the Hughes 500U code and later, Hughes 500C.

This helicopter is also known as "The Dragonfly", first to its bubble-shaped fuselage and fully glazed cockpit that resembles the head of the insect but especially for its agility th flight. The Hughes 500 helicopter is a great, its biggest flaw is its relatively limited load capacity and the lack of space to make a real working tool.

Hughes 500D became the first model sold in 1976 benefiting from a more powerful engine, a flat tail, and a new five-blade main rotor; the tail rotor with four blades then optional. Hughes 500D was replaced in 1982 by Hughes 500E with a pointed nose and many improvements in the cockpit
