The Bell 429 Takes on the Elevation

The Bell 429 is used all over the world to perform lifesaving missions in some of the harshest environments



Bell Helicopter, October 25, 2016 - San Juan Province Government’s Aviation Department in Argentina (DPA SAN JUAN) operates a sole Bell 429 that provides EMS, search-and-rescue, police support and other public services to a population exceeding 750,000 and whose location is 80% inhabited by treacherous mountainous terrain.

“Often times our customers are using our aircraft for a variety of instances — whether it is parapublic, search-and-rescue and EMS — versatility is something we’ve incorporated into all our aircraft and training to help our customers be adaptable and also have money back in their pocket,” said Ray Lamas, General Manager of Global Customer Training at Bell Helicopter.

“On a daily occurrence we are facing a myriad of factors serving our region including, weather, viable access to locations because of the difficult terrain, and quickly getting to locations across the vast area,” said Mario Aubone, Director of DPA SAN JUAN.

“This is where our operation of the Bell 429 has taken those factors and eliminated or lessened their magnitude. Regardless of the weather conditions we can count on the Bell 429 to provide hot and high performance; regardless of the difficult location we are trying to reach the Bell 429’s advanced fully integrated glass flight deck gets us to where we need to be; and then regardless of distance, the Bell 429’s speed and endurance has us answer the call in a timely manner.”
