Property company founder and CEO Yossi Avrahami and his cousin Yoav Avrahami have taken delivery of a Bell 407GXi that will be based in their home country of Israel. The acceptance took place at the Bell facility in Mirabel in Canada and the aircraft is currently en route to Israel.

“We are proud to take delivery of the first Bell 407GXi in Israel,” says Yossi Avrahami. “As business owners, this aircraft was a great investment for our personal and business needs. The Bell 407GXi will help my cousin and I save time in our busy lives and provide us memorable experiences from the sky.”

The Bell 407GXi is outfitted with the new Rolls-Royce M250-C47E/4 turbine engine equipped with dual-channel FADEC, delivering exceptional hot and high performance, fuel efficiency and the ability to cruise at 133 kts/246 km/h. Garmin's G1000H NXi integrated flight deck, complete with high resolution displays and faster processors, offers increased brightness and clarity, faster startup and map rendering, as well as connectivity to tablets and smartphones.

This delivery marks the 31st country to become home to a Bell 407GXi. There are more than 1,500 Bell 407s operating around the world, surpassing six million total fleet flight hours.

“The Bell 407GXi is an excellent aircraft for corporate and VIP transportation, providing both comfort and speed while safely getting passengers to their destination,” says Bell senior vice president, international commercial sales Patrick Moulay. “This aircraft has had many successes around the world and assists with a variety of missions such as public safety, utility, HEMS and training. We are excited for the Avrahamis to join the Bell family.”
