The Russian Civil Aviation Authority has certified Bell Helicopter to offer maintenance to Russian registered helicopters in its Prague facility. Bell Helicopter Prague is the company's customization, delivery and aftermarket service center located at Václav Havel Airport Prague in the Czech Republic. Bell's existing European service network also includes a 40-year-old Amsterdam supply center serving more than 50 countries, 15 authorized customer service facilities spread throughout Europe and Russia, and Rotor Blades, Ltd., its blade-repair center in Warminster, England. The recent certification is "an important milestone" for the Prague facility that will provide Russian customers with "easy access to Bell support and service in the region," according to Michael Reagan, Bell's director of global services.
