Bell Fort Worth Named VFS Heritage Site
Bell, December 27, 2018 - Bell’s Fort Worth HQ is the second facility in company history to be designated as a Vertical Heritage Site.

- In 1951, Bell broke ground in Fort Worth for the first factory in the world specifically built to manufacture helicopters. Since then, generations of iconic rotorcraft and tiltrotor have been conceived, with more than 35,000 Bell aircraft delivered worldwide to date.

- Bell’s Fort Worth Headquarters is the second facility in company history to be designated as a Vertical Heritage Site. In 2015, Bell’s “Gardenville” Site in Cheektowaga, New York was celebrated.

- The Vertical Flight Society — founded in 1943 as the American Helicopter Society — is the world’s oldest and largest society dedicated to advancing vertical flight technology. The Society’s Vertical Flight Heritage Sites Program recognizes and helps preserve the important vertical flight historical sites around the world.

"Bell has conceived, designed, built and tested the most advanced aircraft in the history of vertical flight. This is an incredible achievement and honor for Bell and today, we celebrate the contributions to vertical flight made by both current and former Bell employees.”, said Robert Hastings, Executive Vice President, Strategic Communications and Government Affairs
