Ralph Kunz, general manager of Summit Aviation, says: “We have an outstanding group of experienced and factory trained technicians.”

“We have been a Bell service centre for numerous years and adding the 429 to our list of capabilities further enhances the services we have to offer Bell Helicopter operators,” Kunz adds.

In addition to the Bell 429, Summit Aviation is a designated Gold Customer Service Facility for Bell 204, 205, 206, 407 and 412 helicopters.
