Bell sells three to Poland's JB Investments
JB Investments provides Polish operators with Bell aircraft and aftermarket services, and has selected the Bell 407GXi and 505 for corporate and VIP transportation.
The purchase was celebrated at the Bell booth at European Rotors 2023 in Madrid, Spain.

JB Investments, Poland's longest-operating distributor of general aviation aircraft and helicopters, has signed purchase agreements for two Bell 407GXis and one Bell 505 aircraft at European Rotors 2023.

"JB Investments provides new and current Polish operators with leading Bell aircraft and aftermarket services, continuing to expand Bell's presence throughout the region," says Bell managing director, Europe Jacinto Monge. "JBI has selected the Bell 407GXi and 505 for future Polish customers to provide seamless corporate and VIP transportation solutions, while reliably getting passengers to their destination."

The Bell 407GXi uses a Rolls-Royce M250-C47E/4 turbine engine featuring dual-channel FADEC technology, ensuring exceptional hot and high-altitude performance, fuel efficiency and a cruising speed of 133 knots (246km/h). In Poland, the 407GXi has proved popular with the Polish National Police, who recently purchased four additional aircraft from JB Investments, which served as the prime contractor, increasing its total 407GXi fleet to seven.
