MAGnificent 429 Headed for Russian Customer
The MAGnificent luxury cabin interior for Bell Helicopter's 429 will soon be flying in Russia, the manufacturer says, reporting its first sale there of the light twin with that completion option. Created by Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) of Borgomanero, Italy (northwest of Milan), the interior gives customers options for seating configurations and "a wide range of Italian fabrics, colors and optional equipment," Bell said. The interior includes a proprietary passive noise abatement system called SILENS and a proprietary, touch screen-based In-Flight Entertainment Enhanced Lounge (I-FEEL) entertainment, communication and flight information management system. Bell also has selected MAG to develop an interior for its 525 Relentess super-medium twin.
