Bell Helicopter has delivered the first Bell 429 to the Slovakian Police.

The aircraft will be primarily used for border protection, search and rescue, natural disaster relief missions and road traffic law enforcement.

“This is one of the most modern aircraft on the market, and it fulfills the increasingly demanding mission requirements of our police force.”

Robert Kalinak, deputy prime minister and a minister of interior said: “This is one of the most modern aircraft on the market, and it fulfills the increasingly demanding mission requirements of our police force.”

“We are delighted to celebrate the delivery of the first of two aircraft at the Slovakian Ministry of Interior in Bratislava.”

Jakub Hoda, Bell Helicopter’s managing director for Europe and Russia added: “We are delighted to celebrate the delivery of the first of two aircraft at the Slovakian Ministry of Interior in Bratislava. Customers in Europe have shown great interest in the Bell 429 for law enforcement operation. Over a quarter of the Bell 429s in service across Europe today are flying parapublic missions, demonstrating the superior performance of the Bell 429.”
