Bell Helicopter delivers Bell 429s to the Swedish National Police

The Swedish National Police’s seven Bell 429 helicopters are now all in active service. The fleet is being used for law enforcement and search and rescue, including mountain rescue, across Sweden.

“This is now the largest Bell 429 fleet in operation in the European Union.”

Jakub Hoda, Bell Helicopter managing director for Europe and Russia said: “This is now the largest Bell 429 fleet in operation in the European Union. Customers in Europe have shown great interest in the Bell 429 for law enforcement  [and search and rescue?] operation. Over a quarter of the Bell 429s in service across Europe today are flying parapublic missions, demonstrating the superior performance of the Bell 429.”

Bell Helicopter has recently delivered 15 Bell 429s to the Turkish National Police, four Bell 429s to the New York Police Department, and the first of two Bell 429s to the Slovakian Police.

The Swedes released a short video re the delivery of the Bell 429
