The Bell 505 places safety, performance and affordability at its forefront.

The Bell 429 also offers exceptional flight performance with a fully integrated glass cockpit, advanced drive system and best-in-class WAAS navigation and IFR capability. Additional safety features include a collective mounted throttle, damage tolerant hub and rotor system, and energy attenuating seats. It is the first helicopter certified through the MSG-3 process, resulting in reduced maintenance costs for operators. Passengers will take advantage of the Bell 429’spacious cabin and extra large 60 inch side doors, as well as Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) capability certified for single or dual pilot operations to better fulfill their mission.

Macaer Aviation Group has created a state-of-the-art VVIP interior for the Bell 429 that can be customized to accommodate a range of customer desires. With a variety of seating configurations possible, operators can match their own individual taste.
