Atlas Air Service orders two Bell 505s at EBACE

Atlas Air Service has signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) for two Bell 505 Jet Ranger Xs.

Hans Doll, sales director of Atlas Air Service says: “We are delighted to have chosen the Bell 505. The performance of this aircraft is unprecedented in its class. It offers the best combination of value, performance and features with the ability to fly faster, further and longer than most aircraft in its class. We strongly believe it will continue to outperform the competition on the European market.”

Atlas Air Service is an aviation company with its head office in Ganderkesee located in Lower Saxony, Germany and has been an Independent Representative for Bell Helicopter since October 2014.

Patrick Moulay, vice president of global sales at Bell Helicopter says: “The Bell 505 has been a commercial success in Europe since its launch. With over 45 letters of intent in Europe alone, the Bell 505 is proving to be the strongest contender to address the corporate market. The Bell 505 now has over 150 flight hours and the first aircraft deliveries are already planned in the next couple of years.”

The Bell 505 Jet Ranger X made its first flight on 10 November 2014.
