Bangladesh co to operate Bell 429
A Bangladeshi aviation company will buy Bell 429 helicopter to expand its business.
Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, has announced the purchase agreement with Meghna Aviation Ltd. (Meghna) in Bangladesh.
It will be the first Bell 429 to operate in the country providing corporate, leisure and utility charter, according to a report by www.verticalmag.com.
“The Bell 429 is a perfect complement to the Bell 407GX that Meghna Aviation currently operates, said Sameer A. Rehman, Bell Helicopter’s managing director of Asia Pacific.
Designed with the future in mind, the Bell 429 meets or exceeds today’s airworthiness requirements to enhance occupant safety, with the adaptability to remain at the forefront as mission requirements evolve. Innovation is at the heart of the Bell 429 light twin helicopter.
The use of metallic and composite parts in its construction creates the perfect balance between rigidity and flexibility, safety and durability.
An advanced avionics and systems monitoring suite ensures outstanding maintainability and aircraft readiness.
