Bell Delivers Indonesia's First Designer Series Bell 429 Helicopter

Singapore (March 25, 2024) – Bell Textron Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, announced the delivery of Indonesia’s first Designer Series Bell 429 helicopter to SOTA Holdings Pte Ltd.

Following the successful delivery, PT National Utility Helicopters (NUH), one of Indonesia’s largest helicopter operators and management companies, will manage and operate the Bell 429 for a Jakarta-based agribusiness operating in East Kalimantan.

“At Bell, we take great pride in delivering aircraft that meet or exceed our customers’ unique tastes and requirements. The seamless customization of the Bell 429 for SOTA Holdings Pte Ltd, is the first helicopter from our Designer Series lineup which shall be used in Indonesia, epitomizes our commitment to meeting those needs,” said Sameer Rehman, managing director, Asia Pacific, Bell.

“The Bell 429 continues to be the light twin helicopter of choice in the corporate and government segments across the region as operators recognize its multi-mission capabilities, along with Bell’s strong aftermarket service and support that enable operators to keep their 429s flying more and for longer.”

With superior leathers, improved upholstery and hardwood flooring, Bell's Designer Series takes the cabin experience of the Bell 429 to a new level of luxury. Metal finishing, accented by the leather details, complement the refreshed color schemes, helping to tie in every detail of the aircraft’s interior.

The Bell 429 has proven to be a popular choice for customers operating in the corporate, HEMS and law enforcement segments because it offers a smooth and comfortable ride as well as unrivalled cabin space – it has the largest cabin in the light twin helicopter market. There are currently more than 450 Bell 429s operating worldwide, clocking over 602,000 global flight hours.

Over the past year, Bell delivered five Bell 429 helicopters to customers across Asia Pacific in corporate and law enforcement segments.
