Bell Helicopter Prague Delivers First Fully Customized Aircraft

The Company Continues To Expand Its Capabilities To Better Serve European Customers

Bell Helicopter has announced the completion of the first fully customized aircraft from its new European state-of-the-art Customization and Delivery Center located in Prague. The customer, Air Transport Europe of Slovakia, recently accepted three newly customized Bell 429 EMS configured aircraft at Bell Helicopter’s delivery center in Prague.

The Bell Helicopter facility in Prague is the official regional customization, delivery and aftermarket service center in Europe – complemented by Bell Helicopter’s extensive support and service network located throughout the region.

“We celebrated the installation of our brand new paint facility and delivery center earlier this May,” said Joachim Goldenberg, general manager, Bell Helicopter in Prague. “We now have the ability to provide full customization, including maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities - offering a bespoke delivery experience for all of our European customers.”

“Europe remains a key market for us to continue to grow and develop our balanced business,” said Jakub Hoda, regional director for Europe and Russia. “Establishing the Bell Helicopter facility in Prague lends to our anticipation of further market growth in addition to the introduction of the new Bell 505 and Bell 525. With this growth, we intend to have the people, products and facilities necessary to continue to win in the region and support our growing footprint.”

Over the past several years, Bell Helicopter’s fleet across Europe has grown significantly – particularly in the parapublic and emergency medical service segments. There has been increased demand for the Bell 429, Bell 407GXP and Bell 412EPI throughout the region. Most recently, Bell Helicopter achieved a sale of a Bell 429 for emergency medical services operations.  In addition, the first Bell 407GXP was announced for a private Belgium customer and the first Bell 412EPI was announced in Western Europe.

“Our growth in the region has been driven by one thing - our customers,” added Hoda.

“Bell Helicopter’s continued investment in the region reinforces our commitment to our European customers  to provide an in-region facility that offers the industry-leading service and support we are known for worldwide,” said Glenn Isbell, executive vice president, Customer Support and Services for Bell Helicopter. “We are continually assessing our service capabilities to find innovative solutions to best meet our customers’ mission requirements.”
