Turkish Forestry Unit Orders Five Bell 429s
Bell Helicopter has agreed to provide five Bell 429s that will enter service with Turkey’s General Directorate of Forestry (TGDF) in early 2014. TGDF will use the helicopters for surveying and firefighting operations as part of a fleet replacement program. The agreement comes after the Turkish National Police purchased 15 Bell 429s that are scheduled for handover in August 2013.
