First Bell 412EPI goes to Dubai

The first Bell 412EPI helicopter in the world is about to be delivered to Abu Dhabi Aviation, where it will be used by the operator for offshore oilfield support in the UAE.

“The Bell 412 platform has been a vital part of our operations for many years. We chose to add the Bell 412EPI upgrade to our fleet for more flexibility and increased safety in the demanding environment we fly in every day,” says Khaled Mashhour, commercial director. “A more powerful engine and improved situational awareness for our pilots are two key features of the Bell 412EPI that will provide the enhanced performance we are looking for.”

The company has been operating Bell aircraft for more than 30 years, flying over 700,000 flight hours in Bell 412 and Bell 212 helicopters.
