Bell Helicopter delivered a Bell 429 to the Chihuahua State Government, the company said Tuesday. The Bell 429 is configured for corporate transport for the State of Chihuahua.
According to a company press release, there are nearly 2,000 Bell aircraft in corporate configuration worldwide, with more than 100 Bell 429s operating in this segment.
The Bell 429 offers a fully integrated glass cockpit with advanced drive system, WAAS navigation and IFR capability. Additional safety features include a collective mounted throttle, damage-tolerant hub-and-rotor system and energy-attenuating seats. It is the first helicopter certified through the MSG-3 process, resulting in reduced maintenance costs for operation.
