Bell Helicopter has sold a Bell 407GXP to Sichuan Xiangyun General Aviation Co., Ltd. in China. It will be outfitted for VIP transport and tours. This is the first Bell purchase for the company, said Bell's VP of China, Chris Jaran.
Last year, Bell demonstrated the 407 in Nepal, where it climbed to an altitude of 20,000 ft. The aircraft incorporates enhanced performance, increased payload and reduced pilot workload.
