Fort Worth, TX (July 31, 2014) – Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company (NYSE: TXT), has announced signed purchase agreements with two private customers for the first two Bell 429s to be delivered in Poland. The deal became official during a formal signing ceremony at the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA). The agreement was signed on behalf of Bell Helicopter by JB Investments Ltd., the company’s Independent Representative in Poland. 

“After the successful sale of three Bell 407GX units in Poland, we are very excited to introduce the Bell 429 to the region,” said Patrick Moulay, Bell Helicopter’s managing director for Europe. “The capabilities of the Bell 429 not only allow for exceptional performance in the most demanding of flying situations, but provide operators and passengers with a high level of luxury and comfort during every trip.”

JB Investments is the longest-operating distributor of light aircraft and helicopters in Poland and offer a wide variety of fixed wing aircraft and helicopters.

"I am glad our customers have put their trust in us and the Bell Helicopter brand,” said Jan Borowski, owner of JB Investments. “We look forward to further increasing sales of the Bell 429 in Poland as we continue to showcase its unique characteristics and world-class customer support.”

Both aircraft will be delivered in the first half of 2015.

The Bell 429 is one of the most advanced light twin helicopters ever developed, delivering exceptional speed, range, hover performance and enhanced safety margins with a fully-integrated glass cockpit, advanced drive system and best-in-class WAAS navigation and IFR capability. The Bell 429 has more cabin space than any other light twin helicopter with flat flooring and seating for seven passengers and one flight crew. Wide 60” side doors and optional rear clam-shell doors provide quick and easy access for flight officers when every second counts.
