Bell Helicopter has delivered three Bell 505 Jet Ranger X helicopters to China, the first to be available on the Chinese market. The helicopters were ordered in 2017 by Reignwood International Investment Group Company Ltd and represent the first three of 110 aircraft purchased by the authorised reseller. The Bell 505 was recently certified in the Chinese market by the Civil Aviation Administration of China. Bell celebrated the delivery with a ceremony at its facility in Mirabel, Canada.
“Our team in Mirabel is extremely proud to have built and to deliver the first aircraft to Reignwood,” said Cynthia Garneau, President of Bell Canada. “This is a very important milestone for Bell in [the] Asia-Pacific and we are thrilled to contribute to the development of the commercial rotorcraft industry in China.”
