Bell Helicopter, November 26, 2014 - Fort Worth, TX – Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, announced today the delivery of the 50th Bell 429 in Europe to an operator in the United Kingdom.

The Bell 429 currently operates in every commercial mission in Europe, and provides invaluable support for operators such as, Turkish National Police, National Grid and Air Zermatt.

“The Bell 429 has been successfully performing key operations across all of our mission segments in the region, and has truly showcased its versatility as it continues to take on new missions all over Europe” added Moulay. “The corporate configuration has proven to be the most sought-after choice, making up nearly 35 percent of the Bell 429’s customer base in Europe.”
