Fort Worth, Texas-based Bell Helicopter Textron Inc., delivered the first Bell 407GXP in India to Premair, an air charter management company, and a New Delhi-based unit of Afimac Associates Pvt. Ltd.
The aircraft is outfitted for corporate and VIP transport. “We are pleased with the prompt customer support from Bell Helicopter in getting us our Bell 407GXP,” said wing commander H.S. Waraich, director of operations at Premair. “We often fly at high altitudes in the Himalayas, so having the Bell 407GXP with its smooth, quiet performance is the perfect fit for our helicopter charters for tourists and business travelers. We also take great pride being the first in India to operate the aircraft.”
The Bell 407GXP has an additional 50 lbs of payload capability, coupled with the new M250 Rolls-Royce engine that improves performance and fuel efficiency, reports ASDNews.
