Bell Helicopter has announced the completion of the first fully customized aircraft from its new European Customization and Delivery Center in Prague. The customer, Air Transport Europe of Slovakia, recently accepted three newly customized Bell 429 EMS-configured aircraft at the Prague facility.
The Bell Helicopter facility in Prague is the official regional customization, delivery and aftermarket service centre in Europe – complemented by Bell Helicopter’s support and service network located throughout the region.
Following the installation of the new paint facility and delivery centre in May, the company can now provide full customization, including maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities for European customers.
“Europe remains a key market for us to continue to grow and develop our balanced business,” said Jakub Hoda, regional director for Europe and Russia. Over the past several years, Bell Helicopter says its fleet across Europe has grown significantly – particularly in the parapublic and emergency medical service segments.
