Madrid, Spain, European Rotors. November 29, 2023 – Bell Textron Inc. announced today the signed purchase agreements for two Bell 407GXi and one Bell 505 helicopters to be sold to JB Investments in Poland, to be used predominantly for private travel. The purchase of the three aircraft was celebrated with a signing ceremony at the Bell Helicopter booth at European Rotors 2023 in Madrid, Spain.

JB Investments is Poland’s longest-operating distributor of general aviation aircraft and helicopters, founded in 1992. Over the past three decades, it has catered to the rapidly changing needs and aspirations of people whose dream or business necessity is to fly.

«JB Investments provides new and current Polish operators with leading Bell aircraft and aftermarket services, continuing to expand Bell’s presence throughout the region,” said Jacinto Monge, managing director of Europe, Bell. “JBI has selected the Bell 407GXi and 505 for future Polish customers to provide seamless corporate and VIP transportation solutions, while reliably getting passengers to their destination.”

The Bell 407GXi uses a state-of-the-art Rolls-Royce M250-C47E/4 turbine engine featuring dual-channel FADEC technology, ensuring exceptional hot and high-altitude performance, fuel efficiency, and a cruising speed of 133 knots (246 km/h). In Poland, the 407GXi has proved popular with the Polish National Police (PNP). The PNP recently purchased four additional aircraft from JB Investments, which served as the prime contractor, , increasing its total 407GXi fleet to seven.

Equipped with the robust Safran Arrius 2R engine and a dual-channel FADEC system, coupled with its cutting-edge Garmin G1000H NXi avionics suite, the Bell 505 proves its versatility across a wide spectrum of missions. These missions encompass pilot training, scenic flights, corporate transport, utility operations and public safety tasks. In 2021, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) granted certification for the Bell 505 to carry loads of up to 2,000 pounds (907 kg) using its cargo hook, further amplifying the aircraft’s impressive utility capabilities.

Bell is exhibiting at European Rotors 2023 between 27th-30th November. Visit the Bell booth at Booth 318.
