Bell Textron has announced that the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) will add four Bell aircraft including two Bell 429 and the first two IFR configured –Bell 407GXi aircraft to their fleet, bringing their total to six Bell aircraft.

TVA is a corporate agency of the United States that provides electricity for business customers and local power companies serving 10 million people in parts of seven southeastern states. TVA provides flood control, navigation and land management for the Tennessee River system and assists local power companies and state and local governments with economic development and job creation.

“We have been proud providers to Tennessee Valley Authority for more than 20 years now and we’re honored that they continue to choose aircraft to support their mission,” said Doug Schoen, managing director, North America. “Adding the Bell 407GXi will allow TVA to cost-effectively operate a single-engine IFR aircraft to support their region.”
