The company is offering special financing which includes no payments or interest for the first three months, along with rates starting at under 4.9 percent.

The financier will be arranged by Textron Financial Corporation. A 15 per cent down payment is required against the final purchase price.

The structuring fee will be waived by Bell with a signed purchase agreement. Pre-payment charges will apply but will be waived for later trade-up to new Bell Helicopter, if the financing is retained.

The first payment is due 120 days from date of initial funding with no interest for the first 90 days. Monthly payments are due thereafter, with a balloon payment due at end of the term. The usual term is five years, payments being based on a ten year amortisation.

Financing of up to 85 percent of cost of aircraft customisations may be available, provided the customisations are performed by Bell Helicopter approved certified service facilities and generally does not exceed 20 percent of the basic aircraft configuration price.
