National Airways Corporation Joins Fight Against Global Pandemic
The stakes are high, and the challenges are countless, but brave healthcare workers and helicopter operators are on the frontlines combating COVID-19. These individuals are putting themselves at risk every day to help save lives.
National Airways Corporation (NAC) based in Johannesburg, South Africa is the largest general aviation company in Africa and one of the largest of its kind in the world. NAC is also an emergency and mission-critical helicopter provider. Its helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) operation is greatly impacting the community during this global pandemic. Over the last 30 years, NAC has been a loyal Bell customer, operating Bell 407s and Bell 206s to help with its missions. Today, the medical personnel and helicopter maintenance staff continue to aid and transport patients amidst a global crisis.
Bell would like to thank the NAC crew and all of our customers out on the front lines for serving communities all over the world. We are proud to have them operating our aircraft to battle this pandemic.
Thinking above and beyond is what we do. For more than 85 years, we’ve been reimagining the experience of flight – and where it can take us.
We are pioneers. We were the first to break the sound barrier and to certify a commercial helicopter. We were a part of NASA’s first lunar mission and brought advanced tiltrotor systems to market. Today, we’re defining the future of advanced air mobility.
Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas – as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Textron Inc., – we have strategic locations around the globe. And with nearly one quarter of our workforce having served, helping our military achieve their missions is a passion of ours.
Above all, our breakthrough innovations deliver exceptional experiences to our customers. Efficiently. Reliably. And always, with safety at the forefront.
