Bell 407GX becomes first helicopter to land at Hongqiao

The Bell 407GX has became the first commercial helicopter to land at Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport.

The helicopter will be showcased by Bell at this week’s ABACE event in Shanghai and a corporate-configured version of the 407GX will be featured on static display by Aerochine, one of Bell Helicopter’s independent representatives in China.

“ABACE is an important event for Bell Helicopter as we continue to grow our presence in China and Asia Pacific,” said Chris Jaran, Bell Helicopter’s managing director in China. “We are particularly looking forward to showcasing the Bell 407GX at the show.”
