February 18, 2008
Moscow, Russia - February 18, 2008 - Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, and CBOSS Corporation (www.cbossgroup.com) signed another contract for two Bell 407s. These two helicopters will complement CBOSS' total ordered fleet of 14 Bell helicopters, a mix of Bell 407s and Bell 429s in addition to a new VIP Bell 430 which was delivered in 2007.

Mr. Andrey Morozov, president of CBOSS Corporation, commented on the last contract:

“Bell helicopters are already market-tested and time-proven. They are helping us successfully develop a new line of business in one of the Corporation's companies – R.C. Ozernaya Resort. The exceptional reliability and comfort of Bell aircraft allow us to continuously expand our portfolio of helicopter services. In the decision making process regarding the choice of helicopters for our air company we carried out a detailed examination of all market offers and definitely decided to deal with Bell Helicopters, basing upon the comprehensive and precise analysis. And I can state that we made the very right decision. I do enjoy greatly piloting the Bell helicopters personally. Let me also note that Bell helicopters allow me to save the precious time for the main business of the corporation - I mean development of IT technologies for business management – and this is the fact that warrants the investments in helicopters.”

R.C. Ozernaya is CBOSS Corporation's recreation center located in the land of Upper Volga lakes in Tver oblast. R.C. Ozernaya is the only resort on Lake Seliger offering an exclusive vacation experience, the highest level of accommodation and exceptional quality of service.

Ozernaya guest can choose an individual program to suit the most demanding taste.
