FAA, TC Certify Bell 429

Bell Helicopter has obtained Transport Canada and FAA certification of its 429. The Fort Worth, Texas-based manufacturer plans to begin deliveries of the light twin-engine helicopter this month. Bell claims to have more than 300 letters of intent for the 429. The company will work over the next several months to convert those to firm orders. Danny Maldonado, senior vp of customer support and chief services officer, says the manufacturer will be prepared “from day one with the kind of support, spares and services that the vertical lift industry has come to expect from Bell Helicopter.”
