Bell Helicopter displayed five helicopters at AeroExpo 2013 in Toluca last week.

The company had a busy time at the show, showcasing three corporate configured Bell 407s, a Bell 412 and Bell 429 both configured for oil and gas missions.

“There are remarkable opportunities for growth in the helicopter industry in Latin America. This year at AeroExpo, we signed purchase agreements for seven aircraft, demonstrating the growing demand for reliable rotorcraft across all segments in Mexico and beyond,” said Jay Ortiz, managing director, Latin America Commercial Business.

“We attend AeroExpo every year to connect with our existing and potential customers in Mexico, ensuring we are in touch with their mission needs. The Bell 407, 429 and 412 are three amazing and versatile platforms that have been met with interest and excitement throughout the show,” said Ortiz.
