The Bell 407 has received its type acceptance certificate in Bailiwick of Guernsey. This milestone will allow more European customers to add the aircraft to their operations.

“As the most cost-effective IFR-certified platform, the Bell 407 has more than six million global flight hours,” says Duncan Van De Velde, managing director, Europe. “We are thrilled that type acceptance in Guernsey will enable us to begin delivering our newest long light single helicopter to more customers.”

The Bell 407 offers a robust customer experience with best-in-class speed, performance and reliability. Around the world, there are more than 1,500 Bell 407s in service with 97 aircraft currently operating in Europe. European customers seek out the Bell 407 to fulfill a variety of missions such as public safety, corporate transport and more.

The aircraft is equipped with custom cabin space and a Rolls Royce C47E/4 dual-channel FADEC turbine engine, creating an enhanced flying experience with high-tech, ultra-modern display systems and improved power. Its Instrumental Flight Rules (IFR) capabilities allow for pilots to fly in conditions that may degrade, reduce or eliminate the pilot's reference to the ground or horizon by using cockpit instruments instead of relying only on visual cues.
