Navigating through high winds and icy mountains, Air Zermatt puts its Bell 429 to the test


Bell Helicopter, October 04, 2017 - Bell Helicopter announced today the signed purchase agreement for a Bell 429 to Air Zermatt during Helitech International.

The aircraft is configured to support Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) and Search and Rescue (SAR) for day and night missions.

Search and Rescue team, Air Zermatt performs high mountain rescue all year round in a picturesque yet extremely demanding environment: the Swiss Alps.

They operate one the most recognizable Bell 429's, a bright red aircraft that stands out beautifully against a snowy backdrop. To add to their fleet, the team has purchased another Bell 429, expected to be delivered next year. This delivery will arrive right on time for Air Zermatt's 50th anniversary in May.

The aircraft is configured for day and night operations and equipped with EMS tools, NVG, hoist and a HEC dual cargo hook.

This customer will be on the Customer Advantage Plan Premier contract where they will receive a fixed cost per flight hour service option that protects customers' budgets and their aircraft, and increases aircraft availability at rates competitive to published direct maintenance costs. Bell will also train Air Zermatt pilots to operate the Bell Valencia 429 Full Flight Simulator Level D.

The Bell 429 has more cabin space than any other light twin helicopter on the market, with flat flooring and seating for seven passengers and one flight crew. The space enables passenger mobility and room for healthcare emergency services. When time is of the essence in the series, the Bell 429's 60-inch wide side doors and optional rear clam-shell doors provide quick and easy access. The state-of-the-art technology in the Bell 429 includes a fully integrated glass cockpit, advanced drive system, best-in-class WAAS/ SBAS navigation and IFR capability.

Due to our iconic and bold customer, the Bell 429 solidifies its position as the premier helicopter for mountain rescue. To see Air Zermatt and the Bell 429 in action, watch Red Bull TV's series, The Horn.
