Dear friends, colleagues, partners and team members: Yesterday – April 1st – marked a significant milestone in the history of our company as we celebrated our Golden Anniversary – 50
Truly unsurpassed in its class.
The Bell 429 meets or exceeds today’s airworthiness requirements to enhance occupant safety, with the adaptability to remain at the forefront as mission requirements evolve. Innovation is at the heart of the Bell 429 light twin helicopter. The use of metallic and composite parts in its construction creates the perfect balance between rigidity and flexibility, safety and durability.
There is no compromise when it comes to your comfort. An extremely smooth and quiet ride is just one of the things you will notice in the Bell 429. The large cabin is easily customized for luxurious amenities and the spacious seats provide ample legroom and comfort that makes any trip enjoyable. The large baggage area can easily accommodate both luggage and golf clubs. Whether maximizing your travel time working through papers, or just taking a few minutes to relax and regroup, the Bell 429 provides the right mission environment.
An aircraft designed with the air ambulance market in mind. The deck height matches litter height and allows one-man litter loading with less lifting or back strain through either side or optional aft clamshell doors. The largest cabin in its class and structural flat floor affords tremendous mission-to-mission flexibility. Once configured, the large cabin allows full body access, optimizing patient care. The Bell 429 minimizes time en route so the patient arrives at the medical facility quicker than ever.
Traveling to offshore oil platforms and windfarms can be tedious and treacherous, so safety and comfort were at the forefront of the Bell 429 design. The flotation system has been designed from the outset to meet the requirements for ditching certification for those operators who require it. Less obvious is the technology and MSG3 maintenance philosophy incorporated into protecting the Bell 429’s airframe and components from the ravages of sea spray and salty air.
Fast, agile, smooth and quiet, the Bell 429 reduces response time and crew fatigue while expanding an agency’s mission capabilities. Exceptional cabin volume, large cabin doors and optional rear clamshell doors easily accommodate special mission equipment, tactical deployments or hoist operations. Even the tallest crew member wearing an NVG-equipped helmet is comfortable flying the Bell 429 thanks to best-in-class cabin volume and fully adjustable seats and pedals. Coupled with a fully integrated glass cockpit, with options that include moving maps, multi-sensor camera imagery and NVG capability, the Bell 429 delivers the complete multi-role parapublic package.
