Bell Helicopter displays newest luxury interior for Bell 429 at EBACE

Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, announced the Bell 429 will display its newest state-of-the art luxury cabin interior created by Italy-based Mecaer Aviation Group at EBACE in Geneva, Switzerland, held May 20 to 22.

“The Bell 429 is the most advanced light twin engine helicopter in its class. Our elegant VVIP interior has been engineered to the finest detail and is highly customizable. With the Bell 429's distinctively smooth and quiet ride, each passenger can now enjoy the best possible ride in the exact style of their choice” said Patrick Moulay, managing director in Europe. “We are excited to showcase this highly sophisticated interior for the first time in Europe.”

Customers can customize the cabin interior to a variety of seating configurations, and choose from a wide range of fabrics, colors and amenities. Macaer's specialty custom interior incorporates a noise abatement called SILENS™, and an In-Flight Entertainment Enhanced Lounge (I-FEEL), that provides a fully customized interactive touch screen based entertainment management system.

Mecaer Aviation Group has six completion centers spreading across Europe to better serve the needs of Bell 429 VVIP customers.

The Bell 429 VVIP cabin interior mock-up will be on display at the Bell Helicopter booth #5613 in EBACE, along with the latest commercial product offering the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X, and the Bell 429 itself.

The Bell 429 also offers exceptional flight performance with a fully integrated glass cockpit, advanced drive system and best-in-class WAAS navigation and IFR capability. Additional safety features include a collective mounted throttle, damage tolerant hub and rotor system, and energy attenuating seats. It is the first helicopter certified through the MSG-3 process, resulting in reduced maintenance costs for operators. The buyer will take advantage of the Bell 429'spacious cabin and extra large 60 inch side doors, as well as Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) capability certified for single or dual pilot operations to better fulfill their mission.
