Bell Helicopter has concluded its delivery of four Bell 412EPs to Heliservicio Campeche to support oil and gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Heliservicio Campeche took delivery of the aircraft in December 2014.
Heliservicio took delivery of their first Bell helicopter in 1991, and has since expanded its fleet to more than 35 Bell helicopters. All of its aircraft are maintained by Servicio Técnico Aéreo de México, Bell Helicopter’s platinum-level Certified Service Facility for Mexico. Based at Ciudad Del Carmen, Heliservicio has accumulated over a half-million flight hours since its founding in 1978.
