Bell has received purchase agreements for five aircraft to customers in Ukraine.

“Both the Bell 429 and 505 continue to make exceptional progress in the European market, especially as ideal platforms for private travel,” says managing director, Europe and Russia Duncan Van De Velde. “Equipped with easily configurable cabins and advanced avionics, both aircraft offer efficient and comfortable transportation experiences for private operators and corporate customers.”
