Chris Jaran, Bell Helicopter vice president, China says: “We are thrilled to offer our regional customers the chance to see the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X and Bell 525 Relentless mockups.”

“The popularity of the Bell 206 has spurred strong interest in the Bell 505, and we have more than 20 letters of intent signed already for this aircraft in China,” adds Jaran.

The Bell 206 series comprises more than 40 percent of the existing Bell aircraft in service in China.

“The Bell 525 is also generating significant interest from our customers,” continued Jaran “The use of rotorcraft is increasing in existing and new markets, and the Bell 525 is an ideal fit for the growing  oil and gas, search and rescue and corporate missions here in the region.”
