The Helicopter Association International’s Heli Expo, which ran from the 29th Feb – 4th March in Louisville, Kentucky, was very successful for Bell and despite the cold weather many UK customers turned up for the event! We successfully secured two 407GXP’s for UK customers, both bound this Spring.
We also became the first European customer to sign up to the newly rolled out Bell Customer Advantage Plan (CAP) for our Bell 429, G-WLTS, used by the Wiltshire Air Ambulance Charitable Trust. Bell’s new CAP is a safeguard of direct maintenance costs, and will be great support for the Air Ambulance in Wiltshire. This is a milestone for the great service they do there.
Bell had an impressive line-up on their stand, which featured a 429, V-280 Valor, 525 FTV, and 505 FTV.
