Bell Now Delivering Light Twin 429 Helicopter

Mary Grady

Helicopters may be perceived as a noisy and expensive way to travel, but they can go places that jets can’t--into the hearts of major cities, the tops of mountains, big backyards, and anywhere they can find a landing spot. Bell’s executive version of its new twin-engine 429 aims to change the helicopter experience with a quiet cabin and a smooth ride. The Bell 429 seats six in a spacious cabin with lots of legroom. The digitally controlled engines are fuel efficient and perform robustly even on hot days and at high altitudes. A roomy baggage area is big enough for golf clubs. And all that is even more appealing when you look down at the traffic jams you’re avoiding with a quick, comfortable point-to-point trip.  (817.280.2011, www.bell429.com)
