The first completed aircraft was delivered from United Rotorcraft’s facility in Englewood, Colorado, where the aircraft completion took place.
The aircraf is configured for emergency medicaluse and a supplemental type certification (STC) approved interior was amended to include a machined aluminum floor, additional medical crew seating configurations and various product improvements for functionality and durability.
Frank Graham, senior director of global sales and marketing is quoted as saying:
“The Bell 429 continues to be a popular twin platform for the helicopter air medical industry, and we are confident the new products will facilitate international opportunities, as well as augment our domestic business.”
“Redesigning the floor and addressing product improvement reinforces our commitment to our customers by listening to their need.
