Bell Textron Inc., announced the Bell 407 has received its Type Acceptance Certificate (TAC) in Guernsey, allowing more European customers to add the aircraft to their fleet.
The cost-effective Bell 407 offers a robust customer experience with best-in-class speed, performance and reliability. There are more than 1,500 Bell 407s in service around the world with 97 aircraft currently operating in Europe. 407s can fulfill a variety of missions such as public safety, corporate transport and more.
The aircraft is equipped with custom cabin space and a Rolls Royce C47E/4 dual-channel FADEC turbine engine, creating an enhanced flying experience with high-tech, ultra-modern display systems and improved power. Its Instrumental Flight Rules (IFR) capabilities allow for pilots to fly in conditions that may degrade, reduce, or eliminate the pilot’s reference to the ground or horizon by using cockpit instruments instead of relying only on visual cues.
