First Bell 407GX delivered

Bell Helicopter recently
announced that it has delivered its first Bell
407GX to Avemex in Mexico.
Avemex has been operating Bell
407 helicopters for nine years.

“The delivery of the first Bell
407GX is the culmination of the promise that Bell Helicopter made at last
year’s Heli-Expo when we introduced it to our customers,” said Larry Roberts,
senior vice president, Bell Helicopter’s Commercial Business.

“Since its debut, we’ve had the opportunity to demonstrate the Bell 407GX around the
world. We’ve received a resounding vote of confidence from our current
customers as well as many new customers who selected Bell 407GX to add to their fleet,” Roberts

“The Bell
407GX continues to gain momentum among helicopter operators generating
significant orders since it was unveiled nearly one year ago,” Roberts

Antonio Villanueva, on behalf of Avemex, took delivery of the new Bell 407GX during a small ceremony at Bell Helicopter’s
facilities in Fort Worth.
The new Bell
407GX will be used for executive transport.

“The Bell
407GX is perfectly suited for our missions,” said Mr. Antonio Villanueva.
“We really like the versatility and reliability of the Bell 407 and, with the Garmin G1000H flight
deck, it’s a great combination unique to Bell Helicopter,” he said.
