HelicopterBuyer hands over refurbished Bell 206
HelicopterBuyer relocated a JetRanger from Central America to the US, registered it and arranged for a major refurbishment to be undertaken. The happy Canadian customer has just taken delivery.
HelicopterBuyer sourced a Bell 206 from Central America for a Canadian client.

HelicopterBuyer, a rotary specialist located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, has purchased and delivered a 2006 Bell 206 B3 exclusively on behalf of a private Canadian buyer from Ontario. Final delivery of the completely refurbished VIP configured JetRanger occurred this month.

Denis Vielfaure, former co-owner of HyLife Foods, says: “HelicopterBuyer conducted a worldwide search to find the right helicopter, negotiated the acquisition, arranged the relocation and recommended a service centre to perform a major refurbishment work scope. I enthusiastically recommend its exclusive acquisition services.”

The helicopter was acquired from Central America, flown to the USA, imported and USA registered prior to conducting a substantial work scope. The customisation included new paint, interior leather side walls, sheep skin crew seats and leather cabin seats, new windows, modern glass cockpit avionics, upgraded tail rotor blades, dual tailboom strake, wire strike protection and several other modifications and improvements.

HelicopterBuyer is a global helicopter, engine and parts agent and dealer of Bell, Leonardo and Airbus helicopters with 22 years of experience offering buyers and sellers value-driven sales and acquisition solutions to private, utility, EMS, offshore, government and corporate helicopter operators.
