Bell Helicopter's global B429 fleet has exceeded 330,000 hours of operation. There are already 325 aircraft in service and this figure takes into account recent deliveries and orders from the Swedish Police Authority. Bell has also received two new orders from corporate customers in Germany and Bangladesh, and one 429 has been delivered to a customer in Poland.
"We are pleased to see that the unique capabilities of the Bell 429 are satisfying our international customer base," says senior VP Patrick The Bell 429 is designed with the future in mind, enhancing occupant safety, with the adaptability to remain at the forefront as mission requirements evolve.
The Bell 429 is chosen by police forces, air medical teams and militaries around the world for time-sensitive missions. The aircraft has been chosen by customers in 42 countries, including Australia, France, Indonesia, Kuwait, Oman, Switzerland, Slovakia, Sweden, Turkey, Thailand, the United States and the United Kingdom. "We continue to see a steady flow of orders, particularly in law enforcement. We also have a steadily growing corporate customer base that appreciates the refinement and sophistication of the aircraft."
