Demand for Bell 407GXi Remains Robust in Australia
Singapore (May 9, 2023). Bell Textron Inc. has announced the delivery of seven Bell 407GXi helicopters to Australian customers across various segments in the last 12 months.
Of the seven Bell 407 GXi helicopters, five were delivered to Nautilus Aviation for tourism and utility flights, with the remaining two delivered to a leading Australian utility company and a corporate customer respectively. There are now more than 20 Bell 407 helicopters operating in Australia.
Bell proves its mature production and sustainment support capability with more than 1,600 Bell 407s globally, logging 6 million flight hours across the fleet and actively performing flight training as well as military, tourism and para-public missions. The 407GXi’s Garmin G1000H™ NXi Flight Deck enhances situational awareness and reduces pilot workload by delivering easy-to-read information.
Recently, the Bell 407GXi 3-axis autopilot received certification from the United Kingdom’s Civil Aviation Authority, which allows for decreased pilot workload and assistance in the event of inadvertent Instrument Meteorological Conditions, thereby increasing pilot comfort and ease over long distances.
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.
