First Commercial Helicopter To Land At Hongqiao Airport
In association with its participation at ABACE in Singapore, Bell Helicopter said that Aerochine, one of the company's independent representatives in China, will feature Kingwing Aviation's corporate configured Bell 407GX on static display. This week, Kingwing's Bell 407GX became the first commercially operated helicopter to land at Hongqiao.
"ABACE is an important event for Bell Helicopter as we continue to grow our presence in China and Asia Pacific," said Chris Jaran, Bell Helicopter's managing director, China. "We are particularly looking forward to showcasing the Bell 407GX at the show. Built on the proven performance and reliability of the Bell 407, the 407GX sets the standard for corporate travel with the Garmin G1000H fully integrated glass flight deck."
The Bell 407GX combines power and speed with a smooth, quiet ride and a spacious cabin that accommodates six passengers. The Garmin G1000H flight deck provides critical flight information at a glance for greater situational awareness and increased safety margins. Features include high resolution LCD screens hosting primary flight display and multi-function display information, as well as an Integrated Avionics System with Helicopter Terrain Avoidance Warning System, Helicopter Synthetic Vision Technology, and Traffic Information Systems.
Headquartered in Hong Kong, Aerochine Aviation Ltd. was appointed as an Independent Representative of Bell Helicopter in China, Hong Kong and Macau in December 2009.
