Hubi-Fly joins Bell customer ranks with 505
A Bell 505 Jet Ranger X will soon be winging its way to Hubi-Fly in Austria. As European units grow in number, so Bell is growing its certified facilities in support of pilot training.
Hubi-Fly has agreed the purchase of a Bell 505 Jet Ranger X.

Austria-based training, sales and acquisitions and charter operator Hubi-Fly has signed a new purchase agreement for a Bell 505 Jet Ranger X. The aircraft has achieved certification in the Ukraine and Russia and more than 150 units have been delivered worldwide. The company fleet currently comprises an AS355 F2+, two AS350 B2s, an R44 Raven II, an R44 Cadet and an AW109.

“The Bell 505 is truly a legend reimagined,” says Bell managing director for Europe Duncan Van de Velde. “We look forward to welcoming more customers to the Jet Ranger family, Hubi-Fly among them, and making the aircraft a staple for corporate and tourism flights in Europe.”

The Bell 505 Jet Ranger X incorporates the familiarity of the Jet Ranger family with new advanced avionics technology. Its reliability, speed, performance and manoeuvrability are integrated with a flat floor and open cabin that is configurable for a wide variety of missions and payloads.

The new Mecaer Aviation Bell 505 VIP MAGnificent interior is now available to customers worldwide. It includes a variety of materials and seating configurations as well as multiple storage consoles and trim options.

To support the growing Bell 505 footprint, last year south of France independent sales representative Helideal was approved as a certified training facility by Bell Helicopter. The company provides Bell 505 pilot training with the certification of the Bell Training Academy.

Bell Training Academies are also located in Texas in the US, Valencia in Spain, and Singapore.
