FORT WORTH, TEXAS (July 14, 2008) - Bell Helicopter, a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, announced that Hawker Pacific Pty Ltd, its sales representative in Australia, has ordered 12 Bell 407 and two Bell 206B3 helicopters.
"Hawker Pacific has represented Bell Helicopter extremely well since 2004," said Glenn Murray, Bell's regional sales manager. "Their territory now includes Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia. By placing these orders, Hawker Pacific will be much better positioned to optimize delivery schedule to customers and will enable Bell Helicopter to continue growing its presence in this region."

"Feedback from customers indicates that the Bell 407 is a strong performer at altitude, with excellent reliability and ease of maintenance. Hawker Pacific estimates that helicopter growth in this region will continue due to increasing demands for energy resources, emergency medical services and logistics support services."
