Bell has signed a purchase agreement with Subaru Corporation for a Bell 412EPI helicopter. The aircraft will be operated by Nagano Prefecture Firefighting Department for firefighting, disaster relief and emergency response missions in Japan.Bell has a robust relationship with Subaru in Japan. With over 1500 aircraft delivered since 1952, together, we remain one of the strongest vertical lift supplier in the country. The Bell 412EPI remains a staple in this part of the world with multiple prefectures continuing to operate the aircraft for public services and life-saving missions. We look forward to a bright future with Subaru, supporting the UH-X program and bringing the new Bell 412EPX to market.
