La Belle Bell: Turning Heads in More Ways than One

This September our Bell 429 celebrates her 3rd anniversary with us. 

Since she joined our fleet, she's proved to be a head turner - and a favourite with photographers: And to celebrate her birthday we're joining forces with Bell Helicopter to give away a model of the Bell 429 to the best picture of her, in our photo competition. [See Rules and Conditions of Entry Below] 

Our Bell Helicopter is not just a pretty bird!

Bell 429 G-ODSA

When she came off the production line 3 years ago, the Bell 429 was a completely unknown and untested VIP helicopter: The first 4th generation technology helicopter to enter the market.

So, we were naturally keen to see whether her performance would live up to her good looks.

And in the time we’ve had her on our Air Operator Certificate, she’s well and truly proved herself, with unparalleled levels of smoothness, visibility and general comfort.

She’s also revolutionized the economics of helicopter ownership and is the first aircraft we’ve operated that comes close to offsetting the annual costs of operation with charter revenue earned: Quite a remarkable feat – a helicopter that will please the CEO and make the CFO happy at the same time!

We’d love to see your photos our Belle Bell – Please post them to our facebook page and the one that we judge to be the best wins a scale model of our Bell 429 – kindly provided by Bell Helicopter.
