Bell recruits HelicoStore to boost Jet Ranger sales in Canada
HelicoStore is extremely familiar with the Canadian market, having been in business since 1992. Its relationship with Bell is longstanding, and together the companies expect to shift significant numbers of Bell products.
An established Robinson dealer, HelicoStore has been been operating a Bell 505 Jet Ranger X through its HsClub since August 2017.

Bell Helicopter has announced Quebec-based HelicoStore as its first independent representative in Canada.

“Bell's independent representative family allows us to best serve our customers around the world and we believe our friends at HelicoStore will be a great addition to this network, allowing us to enhance our customer experience and expand our commercial business footprint in Canada,” says MD for Bell North America Anthony Moreland.

HelicoStore was established in 1992 and works with private and corporate helicopter pilots. It offers financing, operating and sales solutions for new and existing rotorcraft owners.

“We have been working closely with HelicoStore for a few years now and this announcement is the culmination of a very strong and strategic relationship between our two companies,” adds regional sales manager Jason Moir. “Its addition to the Bell family will bring an added element of flexibility and creativity to our sales process as we look to expand our presence in the private, corporate and utility sectors across eastern Canada.”

More than 100 Bell 505s are currently in operation, and HelicoStore operates one of them. “We have been operating our B505 Jet Ranger X for just over a year and we have seen an overwhelmingly positive customer response to the performance, technology and modern look of the aircraft,” says president and CEO Jean-Charles Emter. “We believe we will have tremendous success working alongside Bell selling its exceptional aircraft to our Canadian customers.”
