Alpinlift first in Switzerland to receive Bell 407GX

Alpinlift Helikopter is the first Swiss operator to take delivery of a Bell 407GX, which it will use for utility operations. The aircraft was delivered last month.

“After an extensive evaluation, we selected the Bell 407GX for the advanced safety features provided by its integrated flight deck and the unmatched customer service and support Bell Helicopter provides,” says Alpinlift md Sascha Kempf.

“The Bell 407GX's G1000H avionics system with helicopter synthetic vision technology will allow our pilots to fly more confidently with critical flight information at their fingertips,” Kempf adds.

While this aircraft will be based in Buochs and chiefly used for utility, Alpinlift's overall fleet performs a variety of operations, from logging to material transport and sightseeing tours throughout central Switzerland.

The 407GX is said to deliver power and speed with a smooth, quiet ride and a spacious, multi-mission ready cabin that accommodates six passengers. The flight deck's high resolution LCD screens host primary flight and multi-function display information, including helicopter terrain avoidance warning system and traffic information systems.
