Heli-Expo 2023 (March 9, 2023). Bell Textron Inc. has announced the sale of two Bell 429s to two corporate customers in Southeast Asia, demonstrating the Bell 429’s continued popularity among corporate customers who value the Bell 429’s reliability, smooth and quiet ride, and Bell’s industry-leading support and services.
With today’s announcement, there will be close to 15 Bell 429 helicopters serving corporate customers in the region. This sale comes on the back of two Designer Series Bell 429s that were recently delivered to Advanced Flight in New Zealand. Today, more than 400 Bell 429 aircraft globally serve an array of customers, offering operators large cabins, intuitive displays and excellent performance.
The Bell 429, with more than 500,000 global fleet hours, remains at the forefront as mission requirements evolve. Advanced capabilities of the 429 include single pilot IFR, Category A operations and an integrated avionics glass cockpit, designed to offer the best combination of flexibility, safety, and durability.
Thinking above and beyond is what we do. For more than 80 years, we’ve been reimagining the experience of flight – and where it can take us.
We are pioneers. We were the first to break the sound barrier and to certify a commercial helicopter. We were aboard NASA’s first lunar mission and brought advanced tiltrotor systems to market. Today, we’re defining the future of on-demand mobility.
Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas – as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Textron Inc., – we have strategic locations around the globe. And with nearly one quarter of our workforce having served, helping our military achieve their missions is a passion of ours.
Above all, our breakthrough innovations deliver exceptional experiences to our customers. Efficiently. Reliably. And always, with safety at the forefront.
