Bell courts Vietnam Helicopter Corporation with 525 Relentless

Bell Helicopter has signed an agreement with Vietnam Helicopter Corporation (VNH) to pursue opportunities in the country. The manufacturer is expecting VNH will provide them market insight in country as it looks to increase their footprint in south-east Asia.

Airbus Helicopters and AgustaWestland have had greater success than Bell in the region in recent years. There are currently no Bell helicopters in civilian operations in Vietnam.

Patrick Moulay, vice president of sales and marketing at Bell, said: “This is a key relationship for Bell. VNH will provide a wealth of customer knowledge and technical experience in Vietnam to our future customers and this signing reinforces our commitment to Vietnam and increases our level of support throughout the region.”

VNH were given a tour through the Bell global headquarters as well as a tour of the Bell 525 Relentless Flight Test Vehicle at their XworX facility in Arlington, Texas.
