Japan's SUBARU BELL 412EPX Helicopter Fleet Expanding; Nara and Miyazaki Prefectures Place Orders

 

The number of SUBARU BELL 412EPX helicopters in Japan is set to increase after both Nara Prefecture and Miyazaki Prefecture signed purchase agreements for two SUBARU Bell 412EPX helicopters with Subaru Corporation.

The two prefectures currently utilize the BELL 412EP. The transition to the SUBARU BELL 412EPX was a beneficial next step, considering the commonalities they share. With its extended hover ceiling, increased load capacity, robust main rotor gearbox and dry run capability, the SUBARU BELL 412EPX delivers better operational performance and efficiency while maintaining its long-standing reputation of reliability for utility operations.
