The original agreement with Bell was announced in March 2011. While the initial order requirement was small, it has led to additional orders, as the aircraft transitioned into full scale production.

Edward J. Fred, CPI Aero’s President & CEO stated, “We are proud to have earned Bell’s trust over the past couple of years. In this uncertain defense industry environment, it is wonderful to know that now we can look forward to supporting this important DoD program through 2015.”
