Sameer A. Rehman, Bell Helicopter’s managing director of Asia Pacific said: “It is an honor for us to celebrate alongside PT Carpediem Mandiri and the Indonesian Flight Calibration Department the delivery of two Bell 429s with a special ceremony at Rotorcraft Asia,

“Today’s deliveries mark the first time a Bell 429 has been configured for flight calibration missions, and it brings us great pride to support the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation in this important effort. This is another testament to the ability of the Bell 429s to meet mission requirements across a variety of segments further bolstered by our service and support which are second to none.”
