Bell Helicopter has received certification for the Bell 429WLG helicopter from Transport Canada and the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil.

“We have worked closely with both Transport Canada and ANAC throughout the development of the Bell 429 programme and are pleased they have certified the wheeled landing gear option after careful testing, review and evaluation,” said Danny Maldonado, executive vice president, Commercial Sales and Marketing.

“With the addition of retractable landing gear, our customers have even greater flexibility to land, taxi and reposition the Bell 429. These benefits mean that both flight crews and passengers can save time and effort getting where they need to go,” Maldonado added.

The Bell 429WLG has a range of 412 nautical miles and speed of 153 knots, the helicopter can carry up to seven passengers and a pilot.
