Bell Helicopter and National Airways Corporation have announced the delivery of the fourth corporate Bell 407GXP into South Africa.

“We are seeing success and opportunities for the Bell 407GXP platform across Africa,” said Steve Suttles, Bell Helicopter vice president of sales, Middle East and Africa.  “This helicopter is truly versatile and is becoming popular in the corporate transport sector, and we also see increased opportunities for it equipped as a light attack helicopter across the continent.”

Gary Phillips, executive director, Helicopter Division, National Airways Corporation. “Corporate helicopter transport in South Africa is primarily a single engine aircraft market. The Bell 407GXP is becoming the aircraft of choice with four deliveries just for South Africa alone since 2015. We have also already received 15 letters of intent for the Bell 505 since its launch.”
