Bell Textron has announced the delivery of Canada’s first Bell 407GXi to Nova Scotia-based business, Municipal Enterprises Limited. The aircraft is outfitted in newly certified on-board equipment and features a custom designed interior. Municipal Enterprises Limited will use the aircraft with respect to its multifaceted group of companies.
In 2018, Bell introduced the enhanced Bell 407 platform at the Helicopter Association International’s annual Heli-Expo. The Bell 407GXi features the Garmin G1000H NXi integrated flight deck and a new Rolls-Royce M250-C47E/4 engine with dual channel FADEC, which delivers better high and hot performance, full automatic relight, and the ability to cruise at 133 knots.
“The Bell 407GXi delivers a more robust customer experience while providing best-in-class speed, performance and reliability,” said, Susan Griffin, executive vice president, Commercial Business.
“Canada is home to Bell’s final assembly center for all current commercial aircraft, and we are proud to have completed and delivered Municipal Enterprises Limited’s customized Bell 407GXi at our Mirabel facility.”
