Buys Two New Bells
Evergreen Helicopters, Inc. (EHI) closed on two vital aircraft
purchases this week, the Agusta/Bell AB139 and the Bell B412. These
acquisitions will contribute to EHI’s commitment to fulfill
the most challenging missions around the globe.
This is EHI’s second AB139 and third B412 to enter the
fleet, bringing the company’s total number of aircraft to
more than 75.
The AB139 is a state-of-the-art
15-passenger medium twin-engine helicopter with advanced avionics
and performance capabilities. The aircraft’s exceptional
power to weight ratio and high-speed capability make the aircraft
ideally suited for EHI’s offshore, EMS, search and rescue and
EHI is known throughout the world for its impeccable safety,
reliability and success on high-risk operations. The B412 is a
machine that matches those difficult missions, as it is able to
work under the most extreme conditions and temperatures.
Evergreen Helicopters acquired the first FAA-certified AB139 in
December of 2004, and has ordered several more. “The AB139 is
the most modern aircraft on the market and will set new standards
in the helicopter industry,” said Evergreen International
Aviation Chairman and Founder Delford Smith.
“With speed and range that surpass all other medium
twin-engine helicopters, this aircraft will be the future for many
missions Evergreen performs for customers across the
