Bell Helicopter Canadian milestone

Bell Helicopter recently
announced it had delivered the 4,000th commercial product since it began
production at its Mirabel, Canada, facility 25 years ago.

During a ceremony at the Bell Helicopter facility in Mirabel, the Air Medical
Group Holdings took delivery of the 4,000 aircraft – a Bell 206L4.

“This is a significant milestone for Bell Helicopter,” said John
Garrison, president and chief executive officer for Bell Helicopter.

“Today we celebrate the historic delivery of a highly successful
product – the Bell
206 – as well as our outstanding partnership with AMGH,” Garrison

Michael Preissler, chief financial officer of AMGH accepted the award and the
keys to the new Bell

“AMGH serves 25 U.S.
states and is the second largest air emergency medical services provider in the
world. Our company has had tremendous growth over the years, and we know much
of our success is due to our great partnership with Bell Helicopter,”
Preissler said.

He continued “The Bell 206L4 is very mission capable – supporting
requirements in high/hot environments, high altitudes and long-range
situations. Its low operating costs and high reliability make it a great fit
for our business.”

This 4,000th aircraft will add to the current fleet of 155 Bell products flown by AMGH.
