With purchase agreements for three aircraft
Bell Textron Inc. announced in the last days at "HAI Heli-Expo 2022" (March 7-10 in Dallas) the purchase agreements for three aircraft to customers in Switzerland.
Centaurium Aviation, a Swiss helicopter sales and acquisition company, has expanded its fleet with the purchase of a Bell 429. The signing ceremony was held at the event with Centaurium Aviation CEO and founder, Daniel Borer, and Duncan Van De Velde, managing director, Europe, Bell.
Centaurium Aviation was announced as the independent representative for Bell in Switzerland in 2020.
The model is one of the most successful light twin helicopters on the market and recently achieved 500,000 global flight hours. The aircraft is ideal for adaptation to public safety missions, such as the Bell 429 law enforcement configuration displayed at the event.
In addition, another two Bell 505s purchase agreements were signed by Swiss customers, Heli Alpin and Heli Academy. The helicopter, which recently surpassed a milestone 100,000 global flight hours since the first customer delivery in 2017, is one of Bell’s most versatile aircraft. The model is ideal for private charters, corporate executives, utilities, public safety, pilot training.
