Bell Helicopter has signed an agreement with a Bolivian rancher for a Bell 505 Jet Ranger X.
Rodrigo Gutierrez will use the helicopter for personal corporate transport related to management operations of his cattle ranch, five sugar cane farms and a sugar mill, all of which he owns.
The Bell 505 is near certification and is expected to become a production program this year, Bell said. The aircraft currently operates in corporate/VIP, utility, military training and emergency medical service configurations around the world.
