November 18, 2015 By Bell Helicopter
Bell Helicopter has announced it has secured commitments from two customers for a Bell 429 and Bell 407GX in corporate configuration while at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Convention and Exhibition in Las Vegas, NV.
The Bell 429 will be operated by the Palmaz family for personal use throughout the state of California, and the Bell 407GX will be operated by Murphy Investments for corporate use.
“The Bell 429 is quickly growing in popularity worldwide among our corporate and VIP customers,” said Patrick Moulay, vice president of Global Sales and Marketing. “Customers consistently comment on the aircraft performance and quiet ride, and we look forward to engaging our global corporate customers from around the world at the conference and showcasing not only the Bell 429, but our entire line of modern helicopters designed to serve this demanding market.”
“The Bell 429 is unmatched in its category,” said Christian Gastón Palmaz. “I was extremely pleased with the comfort and flexibility provided by the cabin. From people to cargo, the aircraft can really become what you need it to be in a matter of minutes.”
There are more than 2,300 Bell aircraft in corporate configuration worldwide. The Bell 429 continues to draw attention with a number of recent successes (here and here) and the Bell 407 platform remains one of the most popular aircraft among Bell Helicopter’s corporate customers worldwide.
“We are very excited for Murphy Investments to take delivery of the Bell 407GX and know the proven capabilities of this aircraft will continue to attract operators,” added Moulay.
