Bell introduces the 412EPI helicopter
Bell Helicopter has introduced an upgrade to the new Bell 412EPI, by improving the helicopter’s platform with the Bell BasiX Pro fully-integrated glass flight deck.
The new Bell 412EPI also incorporates the Pratt & Whitney PT6T-9 Twin Pac engines and the BLR Strake and FastFin System, which improve hot and high performance by as much as 1,410 pounds of payload capacity.
The new Bell 412EPI is displayed Bell Helicopter exhibiyion stand at Heli-Expo 2013.
“We’ve added value through increased performance and situational awareness to this already reliable aircraft,” said Danny Maldonado, Bell Helicopter executive vice president, Sales and Marketing. “The benefits of these flight deck upgrades have been proven onboard the Bell 429 and now we can offer Bell 412 customers coupled WAAS approach capability, a Power Situation Indicator, on screen performance calculations and a touch screen GPS interface provided by the Garmin GTN-750. The Bell 412EPI is a workhorse for everything from law enforcement to oil and gas transport, ideal for any mission requiring power and performance.”
