Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. company, has announced the upcoming delivery of the first Bell 412EPI helicopter in the world to Abu Dhabi Aviation for offshore oilfield support in the United Arab Emirates.

"The Bell 412 platform has been a vital part of our operations for many years. We chose to add the Bell 412EPI upgrade to our fleet for more flexibility and increased safety in the demanding environment we fly in every day," said Khaled Mashhour, Commercial Director at Abu Dhabi Aviation. "A more powerful engine and improved situational awareness for our pilots are two key features of the Bell 412EPI that will provide the enhanced performance we are looking for." Abu Dhabi Aviation is the first commercial operator in the world to purchase a Bell 412EPI. The company has been operating Bell 412 aircraft for more than 30 years, flying more than 700,000 flight hours in Bell 412 and Bell 212 helicopters. Delivery of Abu Dhabi Aviation's Bell 412EPI will take place before the end of 2013.

"The delivery of the first Bell 412EPI is the culmination of a dynamic effort between Bell Helicopter and our customers to design, develop and produce an aircraft with increased performance for hot and high conditions, as well as improved safety and lowered cost of operations," said Danny Maldonado, Bell Helicopter's Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "We are honoured that Abu Dhabi continues to place their trust in Bell products after three decades and we take pride in providing them with the reliable aircraft their challenging missions require." First introduced in March 2013, the Bell 412EPI improves the Bell 412EP platform with the Bell BasiX Pro fully integrated glass flight deck, providing critical flight information at a glance for greater situational awareness and safety. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
