Eloy Biesuz, president of Helisul, said: “The Bell 429, in addition to its comfort and state-of-the-art technology, provides the capability of multi-mission operations associated with a low operational cost.”

“These features align very well with our operational needs,” Biesuz added.

“The Bell 429 is an incomparable aircraft, featuring a glass cockpit, luxury seating and superior speed and performance,” said Jay Ortiz, Bell Helicopter’s managing director of Latin America commercial business. “We are excited Helisul can now provide customers with a smooth, quiet ride in the one of the most spacious and luxurious cabins available. We also look forward to them being one of the first companies to begin operating the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X in the near future.”

Helisul Air Taxi has a fleet of nearly 50 aircraft and flies a range of missions, including VIP/corporate and tourism in Brazil.
