First Bell 407GXP Delivered In India

Aircraft Operated By Premair Is The First In The Country And South Asia Region

The first Bell 407GXP to be delivered in India is now in the hands of Premair, an air charter management company. The aircraft was ordered earlier this year and has been outfitted for corporate and VIP transport throughout the region.

“We have been overly pleased with the prompt customer support from Bell Helicopter in getting us our Bell 407GXP,” said Mr. H.S. Waraich. “We often fly at high altitudes in the Himalayas, so having the Bell 407GXP with its smooth, quiet performance is the perfect fit for our helicopter charters for tourists and business travelers. We also take great pride being the first in India to operate the aircraft and know that once we are in the skies, people will want to know more about the Bell 407GXP.”

Premair, a unit of Afimac Associates Private Limited, is based in Delhi, India, and has more than 15 years of experience in aviation and provides 24/7 aviation related services to customers. The company can arrange aircraft throughout India on short notice.

“The hot and high performance capabilities the Bell 407GXP offers, combined with a high level of comfort and flexibility, continue to be a deciding factor for customers when selecting this aircraft for their operations,” said Sameer A. Rehman, managing director, Asia Pacific. “We are proud to deliver this outstanding aircraft to our valued customer. The Bell 407GXP will prove to be a difference-maker for operations in India, as did its predecessor, the analog version of the Bell 407 – the most popular long light single helicopter. “

Derived from the Bell 407GX platform, the Bell 407GXP has an additional 50 lbs of payload capability, coupled with the new M250 Rolls-Royce engine that improves performance and fuel efficiency delivering class-leading hot and high performance. The aircraft is also equipped with new avionics features, such as a hover performance calculator improvement, as well as a transmission TBO extension of +500 hours that is expected to lower maintenance costs.
