The European Aviation Safety Agency has granted a certificate for the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X.
“This is a significant milestone for the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X and I know our customers in Europe are thrilled to hear the news as well.”
Patrick Moulay, executive vice president, commercial sales and marketing, at Bell Helicopter, said: “This is a significant milestone for the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X and I know our customers in Europe are thrilled to hear the news as well. Our mission with the Bell 505 was to reclaim the short single light market while honouring the Jet Ranger legacy and the phenomenal customer response is evidence we are on track.”
The Bell 505 has received certification from the civil certification authorities in the United States, Australia, Chile, Guatemala, Indonesia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, South Korea, Argentina and, most recently, Japan.
Glenn Isbell, executive vice president, customer support and services, added: “This is an important milestone for the Bell 505 and the timing of the news is very exciting. We are hosting our first Bell 505 European operators this month at our Bell Training Academy in Fort Worth and the first aircraft in the region is scheduled to be delivered at the beginning of 2018.”
