Bell Helicopter delivers first 429 into India

Bell Helicopter has announced the first delivery of a Bell 429 helicopter to a customer in India. The announcement took place at the biennial Aero India air show where the company has the aircraft on display.
The customer, Span Air, is headquartered in New Delhi and is one of the region’s most prominent air charter operators, offering a mix of jets and Bell helicopters.
The addition of the new Bell 429 to Span Air’s fleet will allow the operator to offer customers superior speed and range, the ability to land in remote areas, along with an expansive and impeccably-appointed cabin.
“In every way, the acquisition of the Bell 429 for operations in India makes excellent business sense,” said Capt. Sudhir Malik, COO, Span Air. “The aircraft’s performance capabilities make it ideal for the challenging operating environment presented by India’s weather and geography.
The 429 is also equipped with all the latest safety features and offers the legendary reliability of Bell helicopters, something we have already experienced with our other Bell aircraft.”
The Bell 429, the world’s newest and most advanced light twin-engine helicopter, has been designed, built and certified to the most stringent airworthiness standards.
