Africair, independent representative of Bell for Africa, has signed a purchase agreement with Scott’s–Bell 47 (SB47) for two 47GT-6 helicopters. The Miami, Fla.-based operator said it would re-sell the pair of helicopters into Africa. SB47 unveiled the new Bell 47GT-6 earlier this month at Heli-Expo. The helicopter is based on the 47-3B-2A. It will receive power from the Rolls-Royce RR300 and feature an upgraded instrument panel. The 47-GT-6 is scheduled to enter service in 2016.
