Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company (NYSE: TXT), announced the final delivery of four Bell 412EPs to Heliservicio Campeche to support their oil and gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico.
“Heliservicio has been an operator of the Bell 412 for nearly 25 years, so we know it has the superior performance capabilities that fit our mission needs,” said Alejandro Jasso, managing director for Heliservicio Campeche. “Over the course of our relationship, Bell Helicopter has provided us with the world-class customer support and services needed to fulfill our mission requirements, and we look forward to continuing our relationship into the future.”
Heliservicio took delivery of their first Bell helicopter in 1991, and has since expanded their fleet to more than 35 Bell helicopters. All of their aircraft are maintained by Servicio Técnico Aéreo de México, Bell Helicopter’s platinum-level Certified Service Facility for Mexico. Based at Ciudad Del Carmen, Heliservicio has accumulated over a half-million flight hours since their founding in 1978.
“The Bell 412 has had tremendous success in Mexico. It is well-known for its reliability and multi-mission capabilities,” said Jay Ortiz, Bell Helicopter’s vice president of Latin American sales. “We look forward to strengthening our partnerships in Mexico and supporting our customer’s missions.”
Heliservicio Campeche took delivery of the aircraft in December 2014.
The Bell 412EP is the cornerstone of mission critical helicopter operations throughout the world, able to reliably perform in some of the most extreme climates on the planet. The Bell 412EP offers dual digital automatic flight control system with available IFR option and excellent Category A/JAR OPS 3 capability. With a cruise speed of 140 knots (161 mph), range of 358 nautical miles (412 miles) and an expansive cabin able to comfortably accommodate 14 passengers and one crew member, the Bell 412EP easily fits multiple mission criteria.
