Bell Helicopter is building momentum for its corporate Bell 429 with seven recent sales to corporate customers in Germany, Greece, the Ukraine and Russia.

“The Bell 429 continues to increase its footprint in Europe with about a quarter of the global fleet being operated right here on this continent,” says Bell managing director for Europe Duncan Van de Velde. “The aircraft strikes the right balance of comfort, power and operational efficiency which is why it continues to be desirable in the corporate segment. Our customers appreciate the smoothness of the ride paired with the bespoke finishes which takes the experience of flight to the highest level of comfort.”

A MAGnificent luxury interior was created by Italy-based Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG), and was configured with four passenger seats and two center consoles. In addition, MAG's signature sound cancelling system (SILENS), in-flight entertainment (IFEEL) and electro-chromic passenger windows are available as part of an interior package. Passengers control the audio/video and moving map functions along with the electro-chromic windows through their own smart devices, which connect to the internal wi-fi in the aircraft.

The Bell 429 is an advanced single pilot IFR aircraft with the ability to adapt to diverse demands without compromising safety. Currently there are 330 units in operation across 44 countries.
