Bell Helicopter has announced that the VanAllen Group has ordered a Bell 429 for a private undisclosed customer.

“The Bell 429 is an incomparable aircraft, featuring a glass cockpit, luxury seating and superior speed and performance,” said Anthony Moreland, Bell Helicopter’s managing director of sales for North America.

“We have seen a great amount of interest throughout North America from corporate and VIP operators looking for a highly capable luxury aircraft,” Moreland added.

To date, Bell Helicopter has received more than 140 Bell 429 orders across the globe.

“As we evaluated options on behalf of the delivery customer, we wanted to find an aircraft that was not only known for overall performance, but also offered low noise and vibration levels during flight,” said Pete Agur, president of The Van Allen Group. “Bell Helicopter not only offered the best solution, but remained flexible and easy to work with throughout the entire purchasing process.”
