IGW Bell 429 approved in India

Bell 429Bell Helicopter has
announced that India’s
Director General of Civil Aviation has approved the increased maximum gross
weight for the Bell 429 based on Transport Canada’s
certification. India
is the tenth country to approve the 500 lb increase to 7,500 lbs.

“We could not be more
pleased to have India’s
endorsement of the Bell
429. We are proud of our rich history in India,
with the Bell 47 first coming to India in 1953
to fly Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay throughout the country,” said
Danny Maldonado, Bell Helicopter’s executive vice president of Commercial Sales
and Marketing. “India
is one of the world’s fastest growing economies and a large and diverse
geographical area, so the sky is the limit for the versatile Bell
429 in India.
Helicopters can help move the economy forward with offshore oil field
operations, power line washing and other important missions. And through the
development of Helicopter Emergency Medical Services operations, helicopters
can save lives in India.”
