Bell Helicopter is exhibiting at the 2013 Monaco Boat Show being held from 25-28 September. The company is showcasing a VIP configured Bell 429 helicopter aboard a superyacht, Northern Star.
The company signed a purchase agreement with Heli-Alps for the first VIP-configured Bell 429 to be operated in Switzerland.
“With excellent hover performance and a state-of-the-art glass cockpit, the Bell 429 can easily embark on yachts, providing owners the flexibility to transport guests rapidly from an airport directly to the yacht to spend more time afloat,” said Patrick Moulay, Bell Helicopter’s managing director in Europe. “With its spacious cabin and exceptional speed, the Bell 429 has been particularly successful among the VIP and yacht owner community. We see tremendous potential for more sales in this market segment.”
