Bell Helicopter, September 02, 2015 - Fort Worth, Texas - Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, announced today the recent delivery of the Bell 429 to Servicios Aereos Across, an aircraft charter service based in Toluca, Mexico.

The customer currently operates a Bell 407GX, multiple Cessna aircraft and will now add the Bell 429 to their fleet.

Bell Helicopter has a strong presence in Mexico with more than 360 Bell aircraft, of which more than 50 are flying in the corporate and VIP market. These aircraft are backed by Bell Helicopter’s superior customer support and service, as rated by our global customer base in multiple industry surveys.

“Our customers with Servicios Aereos Across continually praise the Bell 407GX, so we knew the Bell 429 would be a welcome addition,” said Pedro Corsi, president of Servicios Aereos Across. “Our company prides itself on providing exceptional safety and customer service and that strongly aligns with the Bell Helicopter brand, so we are pleased to continue our relationship.”
