Bell Receives First Indian 407GXP Order
Bell Helicopter has bagged its first order from an Indian company for a new Bell 407GXP. Delhi based operator, Premair, will be the first company in the country to operate the new type and the helicopter will be available for charter services throughout India.“Requirements for hot and high performance remain a key element for operations throughout India, and the enhanced payload, heightened capability and safety margins, along with the fully integrated glass cockpit of the Bell 407GXP were the exact fit for our customer's needs,” said Sameer A. Rehman, managing director, Asia Pacific. The new luxurious interior, smooth and quiet performance in hot weather conditions were key aspects in the selection of the 407GXP by Premair.
The 407GXP was launched by Bell last year and is a derivative of the popular Bell 407GX platform, and offers an increase in payload capability of 50 lbs (22.5 kg). The new M250 Rolls-Royce engines deliver improved performance and fuel efficiency for better hot and high performance. The 407GXP also features a transmission Time Before Overhaul (TBO) extension of +500hours for lower maintenance costs. New avionics features such as a hover performance calculator improvement have also been made available.
