Busy times for Bell at Helitech

Aviation - 30th September 2009

We enjoyed a busy time at Helitech, the largest helicopter exhibition in Europe, held at Duxford Aerodrome (UK) in September. As well as meeting old friends and industry colleagues, we were able to set up a number of key interviews for Bell Helicopter. Indeed, one of the star attractions at the show was Bell’s newest helicopter, the 429 light twin, which has just received European type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Visitors were fascinated to look around the state-of-the-art 429, which also provided a comfortable spot for a relaxing sit-down and some filming!
