HelicoStore Adds Additional Bell 505 for Corporate Travel in Canada

Quebec-based operator sees growing demand for Bell 505 in private travel

Fort Worth, TX (28 March 2022) – Bell Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced today the signed purchase agreement by HelicoStore for a Bell 505. The aircraft will be used to support corporate transportation needs in Canada.

“Bell is pleased to announce that HelicoStore, Bell’s Independent Representative in Eastern Canada, has purchased a new Bell 505 to be managed on behalf of a private client in Montreal, Quebec, Canada,” said Lane Evans, managing director, North America. “HelicoStore offers a wide range of services in support of local helicopter owners including financing solutions, management and pilot services.”

HelicoStore was established in 1992 and continues to work with both private and corporate helicopter pilots. In 2018, Bell announced HelicoStore, a Quebec based company, as Bell’s first Independent Representative in North America.

“I am very excited to add yet another Bell product to the growing fleet of managed Bell 505’s at HelicoStore,” said Jean-Charles Emter, president and owner of HelicoStore. “My clients love the Bell 505 for its power, advanced safety features, comfort and visibility. The aircraft is a game changer for private helicopter owners and is in a class by itself in the light single market.”

The Bell 505 combines the latest avionics and engine control technology with a large open cabin that provides panoramic views for all passengers. A fully integrated Garmin G1000H NXi avionics suite and dual channel FADEC controlled Safran Arrius 2R engine provide pilots of all skill level with maximized situational awareness and workload reduction to fly successfully in a multitude of scenarios. Combined with its cabin versatility and impressive performance, the 505 is relied on for missions ranging from private owners to public safety and training entities around the globe.
