Bell Helicopter, September 25, 2013 - London, England - Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, is pleased to announce the delivery of the first Bell 407GX helicopter in Switzerland to Alpinlift Helikopter AG for utility operations.

"After an extensive evaluation, we selected the Bell 407GX for the advanced safety features provided by its integrated flight deck and the unmatched customer service and support Bell Helicopter provides.
