Bell Helicopter, November 05, 2014 - Fort Worth, Texas – Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, announced today the delivery of two Bell 429s configured for Helicopter Emergency Services (HEMS), Search and Rescue (SAR) and Airborne Law Enforcement (ALE) to the Delaware State Police aviation section.

The milestone aircraft will join the Delaware State Police’s current fleet of Bell helicopters and be used throughout the state for a variety of parapublic missions with a strong focus on EMS.

“We are always looking to provide our community with quality, safe service, and these Bell 429s provides us with that,” said Colonel Nathaniel McQueen Jr., superintendent of the Delaware State Police. “We are very excited to begin performing missions with this state-of-the-art, multi-mission aircraft, and look forward to our continued relationship with Bell Helicopter.”

The Delaware State Police have been a loyal Bell Helicopter customer for nearly 45 years and were the first law enforcement agency in the world to take delivery of the Bell 407.

The police unit currently operates three Bell 407s, a Bell 412 and a fixed-wing Cessna 182.

It is the first helicopter certified through the MSG-3 process, resulting in reduced maintenance costs for operators.
