Hawker Pacific sells a Bell 407 helicopter

Belll 407Hawker Pacific has announced the sale of a Bell 407 helicopter to a north Queensland operator.

Tony Jones, Hawker Pacific’s senior vice president, Aircraft Sales & Flight Services Group said the announcement signals a milestone for Hawker Pacific’s customers and potential customers looking to purchase used aircraft.

“With a growing amount of ancillary services available through Hawker Pacific, we are now doing a significant amount of work in the pre-owned aircraft sector. We are able to offer an incredible range of services including maintenance, engine repair and overhaul, design engineering, aircraft avionics, spare parts, exchange rotables and logistics,” Jones said.

Jones continued “Our client has chosen the 407 not only because of its solid reputation as an outstanding fourblade, single-engine aircraft, but also because Bell Helicopter and Hawker Pacific are proven as ‘number one’ in after-sales support. The addition of the helicopter to the fleet will allow the owner to take his business to the next level with newer and more capable aircraft.”

“Private, special mission and utility needs are continuing to drive the helicopter market, with single and twin turbine helicopters expected to represent a higher percentage of deliveries across the next decade. The Bell 407 is an incredibly reliable aircraft with a solid history and it is great to see the completion of this latest sale. Based on our forecasts the 407 will remain a significant product in the region,” Jones concluded.
