Bell Helicopter says that it signed purchase agreements for 16 aircraft during the 2012 China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition (Airshow China), held in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China, Nov. 13-18, 2012.

"There is a significant opportunity for us to provide valuable solutions to Chinese customers and we are expanding our in-country presence to serve them. According to recent forecasts, China is poised to become one of the largest rotorcraft markets in the world," said John Garrison, President and CEO of Bell Helicopter."Bell Helicopter offers a range of products that are ideally suited to China's diverse terrain, climates and flying conditions."

Bell Helicopter signed agreements for the following during Airshow China:

  • Aerochine Aviation – two Bell 429s

  • Riverside – one Bell 407GX

"We have received tremendous customer acceptance and demand for Bell products and services in China," said Garrison. "Our focus in China is to expand our infrastructure and support network as the infrastructure, needs and regulatory environment evolve."
 
In addition to a strong sales performance, Bell Helicopter made several major announcements during Airshow China. Bell Helicopter announced that the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has approved the increased maximum gross weight for the Bell 429, which will allow customers in China to fully utilize the capabilities of the aircraft.
