Zeus Essential Holding Limited, an Irish-owned global packaging solutions company, has signed an agreement with Bell Textron for a Bell 407GXi. Bell is also supplying two UK corporate customers with the same helicopter type.
Zeus has operations in more than 30 countries, including New Zealand, Australia, North America and Europe. The company provides sustainable packing solutions to customers in the industrial and transit, hospitality, retail food service and agricultural industry.
“As an international business owner, I frequently travel between our locations across Europe and North America. The Bell 407GXi will allow me to manage business needs promptly, all while in a comfortable and reliable aircraft,” says Zeus owner Brian O'Sullivan.
With more than six million flight hours and nearly 1,500 Bell 407s across six continents, the aircraft sets high standards for single-engine aircraft.
“In 2022, Bell had a successful year in the UK and Ireland. We are proud to support our customers' needs and requirements in the region. The Bell 407GXi continues to be the chosen aircraft for corporate and VIP transportation across the world. This aircraft combines comfort and speed all while safely getting passengers to their destinations,” says Bell senior VP Patrick Moulay.
The Bell 407GXi is kitted out with the new Rolls-Royce M250-C47E/4 turbine engine equipped with two dual-channel FADECs, delivering exceptional hot and high performance, fuel efficiency and the ability to cruise at 133 kts. 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.
