Description: Bell 429, dubbed GlobalRanger, is a light twin-engine helicopter developed to become the new benchmark in its segment market due to its low maintenance costs and reliability. It builds on the legacy of the OH-58, Bell 407 and Bell 427 helicopters. The aircraft is expected to offer greater range, better ergonomics, lower noise, increased speed, improved altitude and larger cabin than competition by utilizing new technologies developed by Bell Helicopter Textron. This aircraft has been specially targeted to corporate and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) market segments.
Two 429 mock-ups were unveiled in February 2005. The Bell 429 GlobalRanger helicopter first production deliveries are due late in 2008 (originally first half of 2007) and the airframe certification with both Transport Canada and the FAA in 2008 (originally second half of 2007). It will accommodate up to eight persons (7 passengers + 1 pilot) or 10 persons in a high density configuration (9+1). In addition to an optional wheeled landing gear will feature a high degree of flexibility to conduct a wide range of missions. The Bell 429 first flight was scheduled for the third quarter of 2006.
