Success for Bell 407GXP in Africa

  • Bell 407GXP deliveries in South Africa reach four

Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, in collaboration with its authorized Independent Representative National Airways Corporation, is delighted to announce the delivery of the fourth corporate Bell 407GXP into South Africa.

“We are seeing success and opportunities for the Bell 407GXP platform across Africa,” said Steve Suttles, Bell Helicopter vice president of sales, Middle East and Africa. “This helicopter is truly versatile and is becoming popular in the corporate transport sector, and we also see increased opportunities for it equipped as a light attack helicopter across the continent.”


The Bell 407GXP integrates reliability, speed, performance and maneuverability with a cabin configurable for an array of missions and payloads. Its Rolls-Royce 250-C47B/8 turbine FADEC engine delivers exceptional hot and high performance with the ability to cruise at 133 kts/246 km/h. Its spacious cabin has five club-passenger seats with an additional passenger seat in the cockpit in single pilot operations. For added passenger comfort, the Bell 407GXP also provides a very quiet and smooth ride in virtually all weather conditions.

“Corporate helicopter transport in South Africa is primarily a single engine aircraft market,” said Gary Phillips, Executive Director, Helicopter Division, National Airways Corporation. “The Bell 407GXP is becoming the aircraft of choice with four deliveries just for South Africa alone since 2015. We have also already received 15 letters of intent for the Bell 505 since its launch.”
